Free Training: Changes Coming to Food Industry
Nebraska Ag Connection - 10/13/2017

Big changes and new regulations are coming soon. If you want to keep selling your food products, you'll need to make sure you're on top of your game! Join GROW Nebraska at noon on Oct. 19 for a free training webinar featuring experts from Midwest Laboratories. Stephanie Peterson, food and beverage supervisor, and Sarah Currie, food and beverage account manager, will cover:

- Label Updates

- Analytical Labels

- Database Labels

- Compliance

- Frequently Asked Questions

Peterson is not a self-proclaimed 'foodie'; she would be better categorized as a chocoholic with a sweet tooth. With one Master's degree from Nebraska Wesleyan University, 12 years of lab experience, and seven years of lab management, Stephanie leads the foods technologists at Midwest Laboratories. As the manager of the Food & Beverage Lab, her areas of expertise include analytical testing and nutritional labeling. Stephanie continues to broaden her culinary horizons as a member of the Institute for Food Technologists (IFT).

The trainings are free, open to the public, and you can participate from any location where you have internet or phone service.
