Best practice in health claims – BACCHUS Workshop

Would you like to get ahead of the competition and increase your revenue? Do you have a product that could be helped in the market with a health claim? More and more consumers are demanding high-quality, safe and nutritious foods. But, how do you prove your product has health benefits? And when you have proven this, how do ensure your health claim is legal in the European Union?

All health claims on packaging must receive a positive opinion from EFSA before they can be approved for use on packaging. To do this, companies like yours must submit a Health claim dossier. This free of charge wokshop will provide tools and way of thinking for successful health claim submission. You can access programme HERE.

BACCHUS has developed tools and resources that can help you generate the kind of information EFSA needs to achieve a positive opinion. You will come away with resources to help you decide when a health claim is a realistic option, and up-to-date knowledge about how to make a health claim.

Join us at the Penta City Centre in Brussels on the 10th of June 2016, and learn more about European health claims.
