State and federal food labeling requirements can be very confusing for food producers and processors. This seminar will help to clarify regulations for the food products most commonly sold by Vermont food producers and processors.  The information required by law to be on food labels will be explained, as well as other items such as UPC codes and label claims.  A brief overview of nutritional labeling will also be provided.

 

About the presenter: Londa Nwadike, PhD is the Food Safety Specialist with the University of Vermont Extension service. She works with food processors throughout Vermont to improve the safety of their products, particularly meats and other value-added processed food products.
