2022 Food Labeling Summit

About This Summit

Join us for the Food Institute's /OFW Law's 2022 Food Labeling Summit from Tue. Sept 20th - Thu. Sept 22nd. Attendees will first learn the basics of FDA's and USDA's food labeling requirements, including mandatory label disclosures and rules for authorized food labeling claims (such as low fat, healthy, gluten-free, organic). Requirements for GE labeling and country of origin labeling will also be reviewed.

The summit will next cover the murky area of undefined claims such as natural, artisan, handcrafted, wholesome, made with "real" ingredients, and others. Special attention will be given to lawsuits brought by class action attorneys.

The summit will end with a series of special discussions devoted to carbon labeling, naming of plant-based animal alternatives, front-of pack nutrition symbols, evolution of clean labeling, amendments to standards of identify, and future trends and developments.
