This two-session training opportunity provided attendees with the essential information you need to produce compliant and effective labels for your products. 

This webinar series gave attendees a general overview of dairy labeling regulations. It also provided the history and jurisdiction for labeling regulations; requirements for the statement of identity, including flavor labeling; net quantity of contents statements; nutrition labeling, including the most recent updates; and ingredient declarations, including allergen declaration.

The webinar series also covered marketing claims that include nutrient content claims such as reduced sugar, lower sodium and high protein, along with lactose free, gluten free and natural and other labeling terms, such as Grade A, Kosher, and the Real Seal. Compliance with the USDA’s Bioengineered Food Disclosure Standard was also addressed.

New for this year: “Coming Soon” policy changes that may affect your product labels, including FDA’s draft guidance on plant-based dairy alternates, the updated yogurt standard of identity and the proposed rule regarding “healthy” claims.
