Country of origin label seminar set for May

Campden BRI is set to hold a seminar in May instructing the food industry on the latest changes and guidelines on country of origin labelling.

The talks will be held on 14 May in Chipping Campden, Gloucestershire, where there will be a speech given by Mick Sloyan of the Pig Meat Supply Chain Task Force and an update on Food Standards Agency (FSA) research on labelling.

John Hammond, Campden BRI head of information and legislation services, said: “The
seminar will discuss the latest findings from FSA research and surveys, a new code of practice for labelling of pork products, and new guidance issued by FSA Scotland. We will also be looking the role that analysis has to play in policing uptake of the legislation and, importantly, the potential costs to business. Speakers from Campden BRI, academia, government and industry will ensure that all
aspects of this important topic will be covered.”
