Why Should You Attend:
Firms marketing beverages must be conscious of both the labeling and marketing requirements of FDA and FTC, as well as practical considerations for risk mitigation from consumer class action law suits. As consumers’ demand for healthy, “functional” and flavorful products has increased, firms must ensure that their beverages are labeled and advertised in a manner that complies with federal regulatory requirements and that their claims are substantiated with appropriate data.
