Free-From Workshop

Gain the knowledge to effectively manage your free-from claims

Aimed at both technical and NPD teams, our ‘Free-From’ Workshop will provide the specialised knowledge needed to ensure your free-from claims are robustly managed.

This workshop will deliver the awareness needed when developing products with free-from claims to ensure the right questions are asked at the right time. It will also provide the knowledge and skills to develop and challenge the necessary on-site risk assessments and controls.

Combining both teams in one workshop delivers an appreciation of the challenges faced by each team and the need for collaboration.
