Marketing Beverages, Fruit Juice and Sports Drinks in Compliance with FDA Regulations

  August 26, 2013  
ComplianceOnline, Online Event

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.

This session is designed for food manufacturers and labelers and is focused towards helping both domestic and foreign entities in ensuring compliance with FDA and FTC regulations. The webinar will provide the requirements for juice labeling, health claims, “natural” claims and provide an update on the FDA’s regulation of caffeinated beverages.
