When is a food “natural”, “cage free”, “humane” or “organic”? How far can a health claim go? Does “country of origin” apply to every ingredient? When is it OK to claim non-GMO, when not? What does “minimally processed” mean? What about fair trade and farm labor? What about environmental assertions?

Welcome to the new world of ‘process labeling’. It’s a long way from the days when food labels were simple lists of nutrients and ingredients. GMO labeling is now mandatory, and regulators from the FDA, USDA, FTC, state and local health departments all are getting in on the food claims act.

Mark the calendar for a webinar to bring manufacturers up to speed on GMO labeling, consumer safeguards, false claims and more.

The presenter is Steve Armstrong Esq., former Chief Food Law Counsel at Campbell Soup Co. and now an independent advisor for EAS Consulting Group.
