Recent changes to food labelling legislation and evolving guidance make it challenging to understand the legal requirements, keep up to date and find reliable advice.

Designed to tackle the challenges presented by the EU Food Information to Consumers Regulation (FIC), Legal labels – comprehensive training on UK food labelling is an ideal opportunity for those tasked with label compliance to gain an understanding of the rules and their application in the UK in order to better understand how they apply to products.

This two-day course provides a complete overview of food labelling requirements in the EU and their application in the UK. Day 1 will focus on learning the fundamental mandatory requirements and Day 2 will cover more complicated aspects of labelling, such as nutrition and health claims. Through an interactive approach and practical workshops, you will gain the ability to generate legally compliant labels and identify potential labelling errors early on in product development.

The course is ideal for Specifications and NPD Technologists. It meets the needs of staff with responsibility for label generation and sign off as well as those new to regulatory compliance roles.
