Label bank

Lectures & Seminars

Here is a list of Label bank's past and future participation in lectures/seminars events (Japan).

Professional knowledge

We regularly provide presentations in front of major businesses of the food sector and local bodies or governmental associations, to share our knowledge and expertise on current or future food labeling standards and the related regulations. At this occasion, we also inform businesses about practical details and advise them on how to plan ahead the incoming changes.

A bridge between governmental bodies, businesses and consumers

A great part of our activity lies in staying closely in touch with the standards, but also with actual practices in the industry and the situation viewed from the consumers point of view.
Lectures and seminars provide a wonderful opportunity to do so. Do not hesitate to contact us for more details!
