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 the brewing industry 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 GB legislation now the UK has left the EU single market, and a look at the regulatory issues facing brewers and marketers in today’s competitive world of brewing.

Who is the target audience for this course?

  • Employees involved in specifications functions, artwork approvers and brewers
  • Technical Managers and brewers who require a broad skill set to manage technical teams or managerial responsibility for labelling functions
  • An update course for employees currently involved in artwork approvals and new product development (NPD) as part of their continued development and the company’s ongoing training programme

The course will be delivered live online over the course of two mornings (0900 - 1300 hours), participants will be sent log in details for a WebEx Training session.
