Introduction to Dairy Product Labeling
October 15-16, 2019 | 1:00 - 3:00 p.m. ET (each day)
IDFA is pleased to present its Introduction to Dairy Product Labeling webinar. This two-session training opportunity will provide you and your staff with the essential information you need to produce compliant and effective labels for your products. It will also provide important details on FDA’s new regulations revising the nutrition facts label and food serving sizes. The two sessions, “Labeling 101 and Bioengineered Food Disclosure Standard” and “New Nutrition Labeling Regulations and Labeling Claims” will be interactive, allowing for participant questions.
Dairy company staff must know the specific requirements of labeling dairy foods to avoid the waste and possible regulatory enforcement actions that result from mislabeling. Labeling claims also create new opportunities to market your products and drive sales.
The Dairy Product Labeling Webinar Series will be offered in a two-day series format covering two sessions of two-hours each.

New Nutrition Labeling Regulations and Labeling Claims
This session will cover what you need to know about FDA’s new nutrition labeling regulations that take effect January 1, 2020, including various nutrition facts formats, new dual column labeling, and revisions to the required and voluntary nutrients. We will explain the changes for declaring added sugars and dietary fiber. We will also review how to determine revised serving sizes for ice cream, yogurt and some beverages.
