Instructor: Rotimi Toki
The fundamental rule for food and drinks labelling states that labelling must not mislead consumers. This applies to the entire label, encompassing pictures, graphics and text. A number of companies are obviously coping while many are making attempts in trying to comply with the regulations but are either providing too much or too little information to satisfy the enforcement authorities and the demands of their business customers. This webinar will provide food and drink manufacturers with appropriate guidelines for supplying the consumer with clear and unambiguous labelling information.
