  • Mandatory requirements and exemptions for ingredient statements 
  • Formatting and placement of ingredient statements on packaging labels 
  • Standards of Identity and common or usual name of ingredients  
  • How to declare spices, natural and artificial flavorings, colorings, additives, preservatives, and ingredients that make up less than 2% of the product
  • How to avoid common labeling errors using industry examples
  • Latest FDA regulatory and guidance initiatives and industry trends impacting ingredients and sub-component listings
Our expert presenters will provide practical guidance and best practices for complying with FDA regulations, including how to avoid common labeling errors and ensure that your food products are accurately labeled and in compliance with the law.
