New Webinar Focuses on the Need for Trust and Transparency in the Food and Supplement Industries
West Haven, CT – Watson Inc. is proud to make available a new on-demand webinar, “Know Your Product Will Meet Label Claim.” The webinar is 23 minutes in length and is the newest installment in an on-going series of education webinars produced by Watson for manufacturers of foods, beverages, and dietary supplements.
The webinar presenter is Alice Wilkinson, one of the foremost industry recognized experts in the field of nutritional formulation. In this webinar, Wilkinson explains why knowing a product meets label claim is crucial to the brand manufacturer. The brand manufacturer needs a comprehensive understanding of the critical control points that influence the quality of their end product. In the nutrition industry, effective quality control is essential. When a product contains lower nutrient levels than stated on the label, quality control procedures are failing. In this presentation viewers will learn what factors manufacturers should be most concerned about and what steps to take to ensure label claims are met.
Wilkinson also outlines what should be considered in nutritional formulation, including nutrient form selection, processing conditions, calculation of overages, supplier quality programs, packaging considerations, shelf life, and stability testing. Another important topic covered is what should be required from ingredient suppliers regarding supply and quality programs, including allergens, contamination/adulteration, GMO, product recalls, ingredient identification or authentication, and organic certification. Viewers will learn how transparency can build consumer trust and influences their buying decisions.
