2021 Food Labeling Summit


Recorded October 5 – 7, 2021

Attendees will first learn the basics of FDA’s and USDA’s food labeling requirements, including mandatory label disclosures and rules for authorized food labeling claims (such as low fat, healthy, gluten-free, organic). Requirements for GE labeling and country of origin labeling will also be reviewed.

The summit will next cover the murky area of undefined claims such as natural, artisan, handcrafted, wholesome, made with “real’ ingredients, and others. Special attention will be given to FDA enforcement and lawsuits brought by class action attorneys.

The summit will end with a series of special sessions devoted to carbon labeling, naming of plant based animal alternatives, front-of pack nutrition symbols, changes in clean labeling, amendments to standards of identify, and future trends and developments including a review of the proposed Food Labeling Modernization Act of 2021.
