One Intensive Day with Food Labels

April 20, 2018 • Chicago, IL USA

We have developed a new and unique one-day intensive course that takes a deep-dive into special issues and hot topics in food labeling. For those who already have some foundation in the basics of FDA food label requirements, this class will better-equip you to identify and resolve complex labeling issues, such as: organic, natural, healthy, non-GMO and others. Along the way there will be plenty of time for your questions and interaction with the instructors. A valuable opportunity to engage and workshop with two experienced food label attorneys.
