Workshop: Food labelling (Brisbane)
2 November 2017 @ 8:30 am - 10:00 am
To help businesses better understand product labelling requirements (including compliance requirements) and their opportunities to maximise product performance, CSIRO is hosting a series of free workshops in October and November.
These workshops will answer common labelling questions, including:
- What are the new labelling rules about country of origin and how do they affect food businesses?
- What do consumers think of food labelling? Do they trust it?
- What is a health claim for the purposes of food labelling and what do you need to make one?
- How can businesses communicate the nutritional benefit of their food?
- Should businesses support the Health Star Rating system for their products?
Attendees will also have the opportunity to have a free one-on-one meeting with CSIRO presenters for a product assessment and discussion about their business needs.
