Food Labelling – giving information for consumers

Aaron Scott and Black are delighted to announce the availability of a new specialist training course on food labelling – giving information for consumers.

This new specialist training course on food labelling will provide candidates with a good understanding of current food labelling legislation and is designed to give you a working knowledge of legislative requirements for food composition and labelling which will enable you to confidently assess product specifications, pack copy and artwork for legality.

The course aims to:

  • improve awareness of food labelling law
  • provide guidance on the key aspects of food labelling
  • help prevent mislabelling or mis-description of foods.

The course contains 13 modules covering various aspects of food labelling legislation: you may opt OUT of any of the modules if they are not relevant to your food business (just let us know).
