Food Labeling for Food Producers

 

Time: Thursday, April 18, 2013  1-3:30PM (registration at 12:45PM)

Location:UVM Extension office in Brattleboro, Vermont- 11 University Way, Suite 4

Registration fee: $10/ participant.  Includes course materials and light refreshments

 

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. In addition, a label producer will be presenting a brief overview of digital label printing with a focus on harsh environment labeling ie; freezer storage and high temperature resistant packaging.

 

Note that a separate workshop on Food Safety Regulations will be held on the same day and location from 10-12AM.  You are welcome to attend one or both workshops, but please register for each separately. You can bring a brown bag lunch to eat between the sessions if you wish.
