Is your new product idea “the miracle of all time?” Does it “prevent or cure COVID-19 or cancer?” Even if your company avoids obvious illegal claims like these, there’s nothing simple about researching, substantiating, and documenting health-related claims. Not only are the FDA and FTC both watching, state attorneys general and potential class action plaintiffs are too. The stakes are high, so it’s crucial to get it right the first time. But when R&D, legal, and marketing departments are out of sync, it can expose your business to risk. Join the Council for Responsible Nutrition (CRN) and TraceGains for a discussion on how dietary supplements and natural products companies can ease the burden of health claims substantiation, achieve faster new product development, and connect teams with a networked platform.
Food and supplements manufacturers are under pressure to deliver better, faster, and cheaper. While everyone agrees that quality teams play a vital role in maintaining customer satisfaction and food safety, their necessary risk management efforts can appear to slow down or even stop innovation. Quality pros can overcome these negative perceptions with the right strategy and tools. By harnessing the data within regulatory documentation and the information collected on the plant floor, quality departments can help inform new product development decisions, creating a foundation to drive continuous improvement, less risk, and improve supply chain transparency. Join Vice President of Quality Systems from Bimbo QSR Mike LaBosky to discuss how quality departments can contribute to product innovation. Learn how to connect departments for process improvement, team collaboration, and product innovation.
The National Bioengineered Food Disclosure Standard (NBFDS) is mandatory as of Jan. 1, 2022. The NBFDS affects nearly all large food manufacturers, retailers, importers, and ingredient manufacturers in the U.S. due to its jurisdiction over the core ingredients used in a wide variety of food. Although the new rules appear straightforward, clarifying which products fall under the rule, knowing how to maintain records, and summarizing the various disclosure methods requires greater diligence and more inspections than ever before. Companies that use this year to review recipes, assess inventory, improve recordkeeping, and redesign labels will gain consumer trust and avoid costly upsets and brand damage. Join ESHA Research Genesis R&D Director of Regulatory Liz Salvo for a webinar to discuss the NBFDS labeling standard and the best way to collaborate with your supply chain partners to ensure compliance.
