Prepare for Labeling Changes, Updates with IDFA’s Popular Webinar Series

Oct 08, 2014

With the new school year now in full swing and the holidays ahead, most dairy companies are busy working on new research and development projects, marketing ideas, product formulations and ingredient changes that may impact their product labels. To help members during this busy time, IDFA will present the Dairy Product Labeling webinar on October 28, 29 and 30 from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m. Eastern time.

From the very basics to the hot button issues, the agenda offers something for everyone involved in product labeling. Cary Frye, vice president of regulatory and scientific affairs at IDFA, and Michelle Albee Matto, IDFA's nutrition and labeling consultant, will give a general overview of dairy labeling regulations during the first session. They will focus during the second session on the basics of nutrition labeling, including various Nutrition Facts formats, nutrient content claims, health claims and structure-function claims.

The third session will include a review of hot and timely labeling topics, such as front-of-pack nutrition icons, regulatory enforcement issues and activity related to the labeling of products containing genetically modified organisms (GMOs). Also, Veronica Colas of Hogan Lovells US LLP will lead a discussion on the Food and Drug Administration’s proposed revisions to the Nutrition Facts panel and serving sizes that will prompt all dairy product labels to change.

“This series is useful for regulatory and labeling staff, as well as those who may not deal with labeling on a regular basis but need to understand labeling regulations, such as legal, research and development, quality assurance and sales and marketing,” said Frye.
