Designed as an ideal follow-up to the Canadian Ingredient Labelling workshop, this interactive workshop offers an advanced look at select Canadian ingredient labelling regulations, including enhanced food allergen, gluten source and sulphite labelling, precautionary allergen labelling, CFIA’s Guidelines for Highlighted Ingredients and Flavours and ingredient labelling modernization. With hands-on industry examples, learners will work toward mastering the development of compliant ingredients lists.

Ask questions of a leading regulatory expert and navigate the complexities of food labelling rules, regulations, policies and guidelines to ensure a strong understanding of regulatory requirements for compliance.

This workshop also features a peek at CFIA’s proposed modernization to the list of ingredients on class names, as well as new rules on emphasized ingredients and flavours.

Prerequisite(s): 3-5 years’ ingredient labelling experience or completion of the Canadian Ingredient Labelling workshop is strongly recommended. This course is not at a beginner level.
