Customers can custom design one to three days of personalized instruction for up to five members of their staff, selecting from the following topics:
Basic Labeling - Understand the "meat" of the matter, including the label approval process, generic labeling, Form 7234, required labeling features, standards of identity and composition, processing and formulation requirements, calculation of restricted ingredient levels, and recordkeeping requirements.
Nutrition Labeling - Master the requirements for voluntary and mandatory nutrition labeling, including serving information, required/optional nutrient declarations, Nutrition Facts panel format selection, and selection and presentation of nutrient content claims.
Computer Software - Learn how EZ Form 2000 software for Windows can help generate complete label approval applications quickly and accurately, maintain important labeling records, and aid in the development of product formulations and processing procedures that comply with all pertinent regulations. Use the ESHA/Genesis database for nutritional analysis, then export the results to EZ Form's Nutrition Navigator.
