Overview of the webinar

The need for GMO labeling has been a hot topic for over 15 years. Scientific inquiry regarding the safety of GMO products has generated more questions that have been answered and has added fuel to the controversy.

After extensive review and industry input, the National Bioengineered Food Disclosure Law) PL114-216) was signed into law in July 2016. The rules impact many types of food including dairy products, breakfast cereals, and others often not commonly associated with GMO ingredients by consumers.

Beginning in February 2019, food manufacturers, importers and retailers must disclose the presence of ingredients or foods made from or containing genetically engineered ingredients when the bioengineered per cent exceeds 5 per cent.

Companies may disclose bioengineered ingredients and can use the USDA “Bioengineered”, “Derived from Bioengineering” symbols, or from the text printed that includes “bioengineered food” or “contains bioengineered food ingredients”. The National Bioengineered Food Disclosure Law) PL114-216) was signed into law in July 2016. Mandatory labeling starts Jan 1, 2022.

Why should you attend?

In order to provide consumers with trust in labeling, transparency, education and other factors, if your product contains greater than 5% of ingredients that were bioengineered, product labeling must contain the appropriate mandatory labeling. This webinar will provide you and your staff with disclosure methods, implementation deadlines, labels, printed text, scanning information, web address and text messaging designed to be sent directly to consumer mobile devices that disclose product GMO information.

Food manufacturers are required to “prominently’ display clear label information regarding the presence of bioengineered ingredients. The new rules are designed to provide consumers with clear information and consistently labeled product. Understanding how the GMO Label Rules apply to your products is critical in order to avoid recalls.
