No question will be left unanswered.   Our goal is to have you walk away from this webinar series feeling confident with your labelling strategy.

  1. Attendees will get to work on determining protein ratings using protein efficiency ratios and PDCAAS determinations (worksheets will be provided after Part 1.). Gary will work through both systems of determining protein ratings during this practicum session.
  2. We will dive deeper into the Canadian marketplace for product examples to engage your knowledge and understanding of Canadian compliance matters related to this highly dynamic food category. What are they doing right? What are they doing wrong?
