Benefits of attending

Are you planning on exporting to the United States and need to ensure that your labels are compliant with American regulations? This one-day course will help you understand what changes need to be made to labels when selling into the United States.

Food labelling regulations in the United States are very different and far more prescriptive that those in the European Union, which can seem very daunting for those UK and EU producers who wish to export across the Atlantic. Those who do wish to export to the United States should be aware that EU labelled products are not sufficient and must be able to generate new packaging in order to comply with all relevant American legislation. This course provides an in-depth view into those labelling requirements and helps delegates understand how to translate their EU label in to a US label.

Focussed on up-to-date American legislation, this course is designed for those responsible for designing or managing artwork in companies. This will help companies avoid costly misbranding errors and also gives delegates an opportunity to discuss specific labelling queries with our experienced Food Law Advisors.

Training Course content

The course will provide detailed knowledge and experience of generating compliant food and drink labels during sessions on:

  • Placement of mandatory food information and presentation requirements

  • Product names and standards

  • Allergen labelling

  • Ingredient listing

  • Quantity marking

  • Nutrition labelling, including reference amounts customarily consumed per eating occasion

  • Claims


Learning Outcomes

At the end of the course, delegates will:

  • Be able to find and interpret relevant United States labelling legislation and know when to seek advice

  • Understand how to generate compliant labels for the United States market within their business

  • Recognise aspects of non-compliance to avoid costly misbranding errors
