  1. Clean Labelling Workshop – Sydney and Melbourne

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

It is therefore essential to know precisely how every ingredient and substance has to 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 under the Australia New Zealand Food Standards Code but takes each participant even further, exploring how these can be navigated to present the cleanest version of your product. Of course, without misleading or deceiving your consumers in breach of the Australian Consumer Law.

The intensive workshop helps participants answer:  

»» What are the tips for simplifying a long ingredients list?
»» When can an ingredient be left off the label?
»» What makes an additive or other substance “natural” or “not artificial”?
»» When does a food substance become a food additive? Or processing aid? Or nutritive substance?
»» What is the most appropriate technological function for a particular substance?
»» How can you use the 5% rule to your advantage?
»» When do you need to declare Genetically Modified ingredients?
»» How can you achieve a clean label without breaching the Australian Consumer Law?

  1. ACL Food Marketing Compliance Workshop – Brisbane Thursday 27 April 8:45am – 1:00pm

Do you claim that your product is a healthy snack? Good for kids? A superfood? Rich in antioxidants? Low carb? In the last year, the ACCC has begun targeting the health angle when marketing food products… even when such claims were 100% compliant with the Australia New Zealand Food Standards Code. The ACCC enforcement has targeted companies as diverse as Arnott’s, Uncle Toby’s, PepsiCo, Unilever and Heinz.

Or are you just concerned with how the new Country of Origin labelling is going to impact your products and your business? Need to know if your food is a priority food or not? Whether it has been substantially transformed?

FoodLegal’s Food Marketing Compliance Workshop will help you identify risks in your marketing, give you tools to mitigate and manage these risks and how to compliantly stand out in the marketplace.

FoodLegal’s Brisbane ACL Marketing Workshop will be hosted on Thursday 27 April 2017 8:45am – 1:00pm, Mt Ommaney Hotel, Dandenong Road and Centenery Highway, Brisbane. Pre-booking required. Register HERE.
