Product Description

Stay Apprised of FDA, USDA and FTC Food Labeling and Advertising Regulations and Understand the Litigations Risks

Food companies face greater scrutiny of their product labeling and advertising than ever before – from regulatory agencies tightening regulations, and consumer groups acting like industry watchdogs to the plaintiffs’ bar. This trend will likely continue in 2015 as the Food & Drug Administration, Department of Agriculture and Federal Trade Commission take an active role in assessing food labeling and advertising. The challenging political and legal climate creates a continuing need to understand the contemporary food labeling regulatory and litigation environment.

From labels such as “Natural,” “organic,” to “GMO-free,” or “sustainable,” “fresh,” “gluten-free,” and “grass-fed” are some of the many claims we see every day on store shelves and in product advertising. Label claims have become a fundamental facilitator of consumer information, and strongly influence food and beverage purchase decisions. But, these claims are being challenged in courts from coast-to-coast.
    
In this webinar, expert Richard Wegener will provide an overview of the contemporary food marketing issues and will discuss government and private regulatory and litigation issues that will shape food labeling in 2015 and beyond.
