    St. Joe's Hosts Food Labeling Symposium

    The event aims to help farmers, processors, and consumers gain a better understanding of what labels mean, and how they affect buying decisions.

    Saint Joseph's University/Center for Food Marketing and the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture are teaming up for a day-long food labeling symposium that will cover a variety of topics ranging from brand packaging to regulations.

    The event, which will conclude with a consumer panel and a question-and-answer session, will aim to enlighten consumers, producers and industry representatives about nutrition labeling and its impact on consumer choices.

    "Consumers face many options when buying food for their families, and food companies are trying to differentiate themselves from the competition on increasingly crowded supermarket shelves," said Dennis Wolff, Pa. agriculture secretary. "This symposium will help all parties - from farmers to food processors to end consumers - understand what labels mean and how they impact buying decisions."

    "Food Labels: Consumer Right to Know, Policy and Profits," will be held from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. on Thurs., Nov. 13, at the ACE Conference Center, 800 Ridge Pike, Lafayette Hill, Pa. The program is free but registration is required.
