Food Marketing Claims: The Role of the FTC
Our Price: $199.00

About the Product
Includes 1 hour Windows Media Video File and PowerPoint presentations for immediate download.


In the overall paradigm of food marketing, FTC enforcement actions are of great concern to food and beverage manufacturers as they look to not only comply with regulations but also avoid legal action from the FTC. Charged with ensuring that marketing is truthful and not misleading, the FTC is continually reviewing advertising and labeling claims and taking action against manufacturers where appropriate. Understanding recent actions and their implications for the industry, as well as future goals of this important organization, will ensure food labeling executives have a robust knowledge base of the regulatory arena in this industry.

  • FTC authority over food marketing and how FTC overlaps with FDA
  • Overview of FTC advertising law

Long-Term Policy Implications of the Food Labeling and Similar Food Regulation
Our Price: $199.00

About the Product
Includes 1 hour Windows Media Video File and PowerPoint presentations for immediate download.


The presentation will focus on long-term policy implications of the Food Labeling rule and other similar proposed or enacted food policies on federal, state and local levels. The obesity epidemic drives most food regulation today. While the Food Labeling rule technically pursues a variety of health and nutrition goals, the major overhaul of the nutrition label should be viewed in the broader context of anti-obesity policy. Unfortunately, the proposed Food Labeling rule is unlikely to impact obesity rates. While there are specific problems with the label itself, the problem is systemic and common to all food regulation. Ultimately, the regulatory approach is ineffective in producing successful solutions to obesity. Solving the obesity problem will require private sector innovation and not government regulation.

  • Focusing on consumers’ needs
  • Re-formatting labels for readability
  • Innovation, not regulation

Making Permissible Claims in the Labeling of Food Products
Our Price: $395.00

About the Product
Includes 1 hour and 10 minute Windows Media Video File and PowerPoint presentations for immediate download.


Many consumers rely on food labels to provide them with an accurate representation of the nutritional content and benefits of the foods and beverages they purchase. Food and beverage manufacturers have recently experienced a surge in lawsuits relating to misleading label claims, particularly in instances where products are labeled as “all natural”, “natural”, “healthy”, or “nutritious”. While food manufacturers are responsible for the claims they make on their products, the lack of definitive FDA guidance on concerns such as the level of scientific support required for structure or function claims and what constitutes a “natural” or “nutritious” product, leaves both consumers and food producers stymied. This session will provide some guidance and insights on:

  • FDA regulation of health and nutrition claims
  • Identifying criteria to fashion nutrition claims
  • FTC regulation of advertising claims and standards of substantiation
  • Analysis of related class action litigation and the assessment of risk of litigation versus market appeal of claims
