As we come upon the one year mark from the January 1, 2020 updated Nutrition Facts labeling deadline, and as consumers become more interested in label transparency and company trust, it is more important than ever for food industry executives to make sure their company is labeling their products correctly.

At this year's U.S. Food Labeling Seminar, hosted by The Food Institute and OFW Law, attendees will receive a look at the new Nutrition Facts label requirements, as well as a deeper exploration into all aspects of food labeling.

The event will be held on Wednesday, Nov. 7, 2018 from 9:00am-5:00pm at the Newark Airport Marriott in Newark, NJ. Bruce Silverglade, Principal at Washington, DC-based firm OFW Law, which specializes in the agriculture, food, and drug industries, will cover the basics of food labeling, as well as country of origin labeling; mandatory label information; authorized claims; menu labeling; enforcement by FDA, other authorities and class action cases; and future developments.

New content has been added to give attendees a more comprehensive overview of food labeling and a deeper dive into solving labeling problems. New topics for this year's event include:

  • FDA's new consumer education plans for the Nutrition Facts label and what it means for your product
  • GE Labeling and "Non-GMO" claims
  • New developments for ingredient labeling
  • Debating "healthy" claims - What should they mean?
  • Class action litigation trends 2018

Also new this year, attendees will have the opportunity to participate in interactive labeling workshops where they will work through examples of different labeling problems and scenarios.
