Ready for Vermont? Complying with the First Mandatory GMO Labeling Law Webinar


If you sell products in Vermont, there is no time to wait deciding how to comply with the state’s complex law for labeling foods containing genetically modified organisms (GMOs), which goes into effect July 1, 2016. Join IDFA’s labeling and regulatory experts for this webinar that will help companies better understand how to comply with the nation’s first mandatory GMO labeling law. IDFA members are invited to participate in this webinar free of charge.

To avoid massive penalties and possible regulatory or citizen enforcement that could result from mislabeling, dairy company staff must understand the specific requirements of Vermont’s law. These labeling requirements are coupled with complex recordkeeping requirements.

The Ready for Vermont?  Complying with the First Mandatory GMO Labeling Law webinar will walk participants through the different aspects of Vermont’s law, explain the evaluation needed to determine which products must be labeled or are exempt, and discuss the law’s strict recordkeeping and labeling requirements. The session will be interactive .

Learn the ins-and-outs of this complex law and the steps that companies must take to comply.
