Food Label Seminars - Fall 2018
Prime Label Consultants is proud to partner with Morgan Lewis to provide a mid-year update to its annual Food Label Conference (FLC). Structured as two one day seminars, conveniently located near Chicago's O'Hare airport, they will mirror the FLC's popular blend of trending topics and practical insights. These are two days you cannot afford to miss!
This year the food industry is challenged to adjust to multiple compliance initiatives at once, which are upending over two decades of labeling strategy. From USDA's Bioengineering law to FDA's Nutrition Label Reform and new Nutrition Innovation Strategy, companies must balance regulatory and marketplace demands in a shifting landscape. Day 1 will explore new government initiatives, labeling trends and litigation exposure, while Day 2 will focus on Nutrition Label Reform.
