Labeling Regulations for Dairy Products Workshop

Sorry, this workshop is full and registrations are closed.

Course Overview

Dairy Farmers of Wisconsin will host a regional workshop entitled “Labeling Regulations for Dairy Products Workshop”. As new products appear on the marketplace it’s important for dairy processors to accurately describe products per Wisconsin and federal requirements. Understanding basic labeling requirements is essential to brand protection in today’s marketplace.

The course, offered through Dairy Farmers of Wisconsin in conjunction with the International Dairy Foods Association, focuses on practical skills that can be applied to your facility. Your instructors for this course will be Michelle Matto with Adam Brock from Dairy Farmers of Wisconsin providing additional support. We may have an additional guest speaker for this course!

Additional courses will be offered in the future so please keep an eye out for additional course offerings!
