Basics of Food Labelling
The Food and Drink Forum are delighted to work on behalf of Marketing Peak District and Derbyshire (MPDD) to offer Derbyshire food and drink producers and visitor economy businesses  the opportunity to attend this fully funded course to help you grow and develop your businesses through the amazing food and drink products produced.  Ensuring all food items are correctly labelled is a legal requirement and through this course we will show you how to ensure your food labelling is correct and meets not only your customers but also legal requirement needs.
 
This half day session is for any Derbyshire business looking to understand the legal requirements around food labelling. New regulations around food labelling were issued in 2014 and it is now compulsory for all food and drink businesses to abide by these regulations (even if giving food to consumers for free). Hear from The Food & Drink Forum’s team of food technical experts who have been assisting businesses with the implementation of the regulations.
