[WEBINAR] Understanding VITAL® 3.0 in 3 Case Studies

An expert conversation with Ben Remington (Remington Consulting Group) and Rachel Scott (Romer Labs)

What does VITAL® 3.0 look like in real-life?

With its emphasis on risk assessment and action levels based on carefully determined reference doses, VITAL® can help producers comply with regulations for allergen management and labeling. Now, the Allergen Bureau is unveiling the latest version of the program, VITAL® 3.0.

How are food producers implementing VITAL® 3.0 on a practical basis?

In this webinar, food allergen experts Ben Remington (Remington Consulting Group) and Rachel Scott (Romer Labs) discuss some of the issues that this new version of VITAL® raises. Three case studies (milk in cookie, mustard in spice mixture, composite meal) represent progressive levels of difficulty in determining the degree of risk and the necessity for precautionary labeling.
