Benefits of attending

Following our successful Hot Topics in Food Additives and Flavourings Seminar in 2015, we are launching a one day course on food additives, Enzymes and Flavourings (known as the Food Improvement Agents Package – FIAP).

With the amalgamation of several EU Directives on food additives and the changes in the food categorisation system, the course will provide an in depth understanding of the legal framework relating to food additives, Enzymes and Flavourings and will clarify the changes that the Food Information to Consumers Regulation has brought about for additives labelling.

The day will be a mixture of lectures and practical’s aimed at those with responsibility for new product development but also those who are involved in the marketing of pre-packed foods containing additives.  Attendees will able to apply the knowledge gained to their work environment and ensure compliance for their business with the FIAP, with the ability to label products within the legal framework.
