What is clean labeling? How do consumer trends impact product labeling? This webcast identifies what consumers look for on product labels including statements such as natural, organic and “free-of”.
Learn the regulatory and legal requirements around product labeling and ingredient statements. Challenges including determining which ingredients need to be declared on product labels will be addressed, as well as issues companies face in regards to proprietary information such as processing rules and 3rd party vendor information that make it difficult to declare appropriate information on product labels. Specific case studies will be presented to help identify and understand current labeling regulations and legal requirements.
