FALL SEMINAR: New Bioengineered (GMO) Disclosure: Working Session for Best Practices Across the Supply Chain

For the first time in the US, industry will need to disclose food's Bioengineered (BE) status on packages. Companies are on the hook to have a plan in place by the Implementation date of January 1, 2020, less than a year away, and then will have just two short years to bring all labels into compliance.

Although the rule is fairly simple on its surface, many questions remain:

* Which of the four disclosure options aligns best with your company's marketing and business strategy?

* What are the downstream costs and risks associated with each disclosure option?

* What information will my suppliers be providing and what records do I need to keep?

* How will industry coordinate BE disclosure and record keeping requirements across a complex supply chain?

* What are the practical risks of non-compliance and can companies be sued?

* How will Bioengineering disclosure mesh with other non-GMO and genetically engineered claims?

New Bioengineered (GMO) Disclosure: Working Session for Best Practices Across the Supply Chain

 Jesse Zuehlke, PhD

Friday, October 11

After diving into the specifics of the new National Bioengineered Disclosure Standard, this seminar will focus on assessing the pros and cons of implementation strategies and developing a tactical roadmap that works across the entire supply chain. Starting with an assessment of technical and business knowns and unknowns, we will take a working group approach to developing best practices to coordinate across multiple constituencies and information platforms.

This full day session includes: 

* Overview of new National Bioengineered Disclosure Standard
* Planning the transition across supply chain interdependencies
* Tracking ingredient data
* Disclosure standards - pros & cons of online vs. packaged label options
* Managing changing government disclosure requirements
* Enforcement risk mitigation

This year, the food industry is being challenged to adjust to multiple compliance initiatives at once, which are upending over two decades of labeling strategy. Consequently, Prime Label has created these Food Label Seminars which serve as  a mid-year update to its annual Food Label Conference (FLC). Structured as two one day seminars, conveniently located near Chicago's O'Hare airport, the seminars will mirror the FLC's popular blend of trending topics and practical insights.
