What Does the Proposed Biotech Labeling Rule Mean for Dairy?

May 16, 2018

The U.S. Department of Agriculture this month released the proposed rule on the National Bioengineered Food Disclosure Standard, which would require food labels and packaging to reveal the presence of genetically engineered ingredients.

IDFA’s Regulatory RoundUP, June 5-6 in Washington, D.C., will discuss what’s in the proposed rule and how dairy companies may need to change their labels to comply.

Emily Lyons, former IDFA director of regulatory affairs and current associate attorney at Michael Best & Friedrich LLP, will present the session, along with Randy Russell, president of the Russell Group, a Washington, D.C., consulting firm.

Regulatory RoundUP will end at noon on June 6. IDFA invites attendees to stay for the Annual Capitol Hill Ice Cream Party, which will be held 4-6 p.m. directly in front of the Capitol Building.
