Why take this course?

The Food & Beverage Labeling Course, offered by Consumer Brands, is the premier opportunity for labeling professionals to receive in-depth instruction on regulatory labeling requirements for food and beverage products.

The course covers requirements for both FDA and USDA regulated product claims “gluten free”, “fresh”, “low sodium”, “organic” and “natural” along with best practices to ensure product labeling meets meticulous standards. This helps ensure companies provide accurate information to consumers.

This course is a can’t-miss for those needing a refresher or new to labeling.

Topics include:

  • General Authorities
  • Required Labeling Elements
  • Nutrition Labeling
  • Ingredient and Nutrition Claims
  • Bioengineered Food Labeling
  • Special Labeling Provisions
  • Placement of Required Labeling Elements

Each area is broken down into subtopics that explain both the regulatory requirements and examples from actual products.

Participants benefit from:

  • The ability to view lectures on their own time through a self-paced session and revisit topics as needed, ensuring they fully grasp the concepts.
  • A suite of downloadable checklists and resources that support their typical daily activities.
  • Live meet-ups, which are scheduled throughout the session with the course instructor, a labeling veteran with over 20 years of experience, for attendees to ask questions and see product examples.
  • Meeting fellow professionals in their field.
  • A digital certificate indicating they have completed the course.
