The course will go into the most up-to-date legislation and guidance that relate to labelling of these products and is of benefit to those who are new into the field of labelling and those seeking a refresher in light of recent legislative changes, and is aimed at those who are responsible for generating product labels. There will also be an interactive element to allow delegates to work through examples of labels with our Food Law Advisors.
