State and federal food labeling requirements can be very confusing for food producers and processors. This seminar will help to clarify regulations for the food products most commonly sold by Vermont food producers and processors. The information required by law to be on food labels will be explained, as well as other items such as UPC codes and label claims. A brief overview of nutritional labeling will also be provided.
