Canadian Ingredient Labelling and Nutritional Labelling Course...


This was an excellent course provided by Gary Gnirss. Our instructor was
very knowledgeable in the subject matter and he had designed the course in 
very effective manner.

There were ample examples, hands-on individual and group exercises,
supporting materials and soft copy content provided. Not only was he able 
to answer most of our questions, but he also pushed us to critically think
about content that goes on the packaging material. Thanks to AFPA for
organizing this wonderful course. Highly recommended course for any
individual who wishes to get a head-start with Canadian Ingredient 
Labelling and Nutritional Labelling.
