MSU's Institute for Food Laws and Regulations (IFLR) offers a graduate-level online course in Food Laws and Regulations in the European Union, each fall semester.

David Jukes of Reading University in the U.K., and Neal Fortin of MSU's IFLR, will give students an overview of the European Union's regulatory system, major laws and current developments. 

IFLR is excited to welcome the following content-matter experts to deliver modules this fall:

  • Martin Holle, Professor of Food Law at Hamburg University of Applied Sciences, will lecture on the "requirements of nutritional, functional and heal claims."
  • Raymond O'Rourke, food regulatory and consumer affairs lawyer, and European Food Safety Authority Management Board Member, will lecture on the "regulatory requirements and procedures for importing food into the EU."
  • Cesare Varallo, a food lawyer based in Italy and founder of foodlawlatest.com, will lecture on the "EU regulatory framework for control of food fraud."

IFLR's graduate level courses are taught entirely online. Most students take one course per semester while also working full time in the food industry. Students may earn a Certificate in International or United States Food Law upon the successful completion of four courses. Many students go on to earn an online Master's Degree in Global Food Law or online Master of Science Degree in Food Safety, also from Michigan State University.

The Food Laws and Regulations in the European Union course is designed for attorneys, food science professionals, regulators, HACCP, ISO-9000 and ISO-22000 consultants and certification officials, and industry professionals who must maintain certification requirements. It provides students with an overview of the systems of food regulation practiced in the European Union.
