What it’s about

FoodLegal Principal Charles Fisher

There is enormous pressure on food product suppliers and retailers to present products as natural and as free from artificial substances as possible.

It is therefore essential to know precisely how every ingredient and substance will or might be declared on the product label and marketing… if it has to be declared at all.

This FoodLegal workshop focuses on the food labelling obligations not only under the Australia New Zealand Food Standards Code and the Australian Consumer Law, but also how these can be navigated to present the cleanest image of your product. Of course, without misleading or deceiving your consumers in breach of the Australian Consumer Law.

We also consider how some substance distinctions are to change under the new Food Standards Code coming into effect in early 2016.

This course will assist you in selecting and classifying ingredients based on how they may be represented on the product label.

Learn more from Charles Fisher, a FoodLegal compliance expert who will explain the additional opportunities that can be availed of and overcome uncertainty. Learn how best to develop, market and sell your products using clean labelling strategies.
