Food & drink labelling – an overview, live online tutor-led training course

Benefits of attending

Food labelling legislation has changed substantially over the last few years, most recently and fundamentally with the introduction of the EU Food Information to Consumers Regulation. Labellers need to be fully aware of these changes and of other laws that relate to particular aspects of food labelling in order to produce legally compliant labels.

This course is designed to give delegates the essential top line requirements of mandatory food and drink labelling for EU Harmonised and UK legislation.

  • Employees involved in specifications functions or artwork approvers
  • Employees returning to work after a career break or those changing roles within the technical functions
