Food Labelling & HEALTH CLAIMS

These interactive half-day workshops presented by FoodLegal’s Charles Fisher will walk you through all the elements you need to consider when developing your product label, from allergen statements to ingredients lists and how to make a compliant health claim on your label and marketing materials.

Attend one session or both. Individual workshop pricing available in Registration link.

Food Labelling 101

This event is vital for anyone who is starting their journey into food labels and regulation, as well as those who are seeking an update on their labelling knowledge.

We will help you answer all these questions and MORE:

  • What information MUST you include on a food label?
  • When can pictures or brand names get you into trouble?
  • When can you declare “traces” of allergens?
  • When has my product been “substantially transformed” in Australia?
  • When do you NOT have to include an ingredients list or nutrition information?
  • How do you write an ingredients list that does NOT take up half of your pack?
  • When is something a food additive, a nutritive substance or a processing aid?

Health Claims

This event is vital for anyone thinking about using health claims to set themselves apart in light of the recent ACCC case against Heinz (resulting in a penalty of $2.25 million) for representing their product as healthy.

We will help you answer all these questions and MORE:

  • Is the claim “healthy”… a health claim?
  • Where does the ACCC expect more than FSANZ in relation to health claims?
  • Does just mentioning probiotics, fibre or protein count as a health claim?
  • What is the difference between a “health claim” and a “nutrition content claim”?
  • How much science do you need to self-substantiate a health claim?
  • Does a health claim trigger any other labelling obligations?
