Participants in AIB International’s seminar Labeling of FDA Regulated Food Products acquire the skills to properly use and display labeling elements on their food packages during two days of discussions and practical exercises that clarify every detail of the FDA labeling requirements.
Although the course emphasizes the basics of labeling, it also serves as an excellent review and update for those with greater experience. Some participants attend more than once to find out the latest changes to regulations and to gain insight into potential labeling issues.
Who should attend
Persons responsible for regulatory compliance with FDA food labeling regulations. This is a comprehensive course geared toward the person that has only had minimal exposure to food labeling regulations or is in need of a review and update of the current regulations.
Learning Objectives
  • Determine which government agencies are responsible for regulating the labeling of food and the laws that they administer. Identify what types of enforcement action may be taken for violative products.
  • Apply the regulations pertaining to principal display panels (PDP), information panels (IP), statement of identity for product naming, package quantity of contents statements and name/address of place of business.
  • Demonstrate the proper declaration of ingredients on a package label and the correct disclosure of major food allergens.
  • Distinguish between retail food packages and those for restaurants, institutions and other food service industries and determine what labeling elements are required on each type of package.
  • Determine when country of origin labeling is required, what types of whole grain statements can be made, and whether a product can be labeled as "natural", "gluten-free", or "organic".
  • Summarize what information has to be in the nutrition facts panel, what information is voluntary, how the information is declared, when different nutrition formats can be used and when a product may be exempt from nutrition labeling.
  • Explain the difference between nutrient content claims and health claims, and discuss the requirements for the various types of claims.
