Title: Food Packaging and Labeling: Crucial, Controversial, and Changing

Food technologists know that the way their food is packaged and labeled is as important to product success as flavor, formulation and GMPs.

This lively update will summarize the emerging new legal pressures on food contact materials in packaging – many inspired by environmental concerns – and will detail the most important current food labeling controversies.

Hear what’s up with sustainable packaging, increasing legal pressures on plastics, the movement toward ‘clean’ label foods, the controversy over label statements of ‘added sugars,’ and more. There will be plenty of time for your questions, too.
