Program Description

For information on virtual instructor-led training, please email us.

This course is designed as an ideal follow-up to the Canadian Nutrition Labelling program and features more hands-on workshop exercises to apply the knowledge gained. A more detailed look at nutrient content claims and health claims is also featured. The course covers nutritional labelling modernization and the new and more complex rules related to serving sizes. We also provide a peek at proposed front-of-package nutrition symbol labelling.

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