GMA Offering Food Safety, Labeling Webinars

The Grocery Manufacturers Association, based in Washington, D.C., says the Nov. 2 and 3 events will help members adapt to the Food Safety Modernization Act and prepare for expected FDA changes in Nutrition Facts labels.

Two webinars early next month will help members of the Grocery Manufacturers Association adjust to "the rapidly changing landscape of food safety law" and a proposed rule affecting Nutrition Facts labels that is expected soon from the Food and Drug Administration.

Starting at 1 p.m. Eastern time on Nov. 2, the 2011 Food Litigation Webinar: Focus on Food Safety Law is a three-hour presentation on regulatory changes under the recently passed Food Safety Modernization Act and recent trends in litigation against the industry. This webinar will help in-house counsel and litigation managers for manufacturers, restaurants, retailers, and distributors in the industry stay protect their brands, according to GMA.

The second webinar starts at 1 p.m. Eastern on Nov. 3 and will last two hours. The Get Smart: What's Coming in Nutrition Labeling webinar will explain what FDA is expected to require in its nutrition rulemaking, which would sffect all food labels. The association says FDA is expected late this year to publish "an extensive proposed rule that would reform the Nutrition Facts label and related rules, which would include requiring additional nutrient declarations, making some currently required declarations voluntary, and regulating some nutrition-related claims.
