On 2nd June 2015 I will be guest speaker at the Food&Beverage Law&IP conference, organised in London by IPRConnections in the exclusive location of the London Stock Exchange. Foodlawlatest.com is a media partner of the event and I have to thank you my dear friend Christos Apostolou for producing this amazing event.
The F&B Law & IP event is the premier event supporting creative partnerships in the food and beverage industry. The event is bringing together the most influential brand and IP owners, f&b manufacturers, licensees and licensed goods retailers and is a perfect mix of regulatory, labelling and IP themes. There will be specific panel on counterfeiting, parallel imports, food frauds, labelling and geographical indications.
There will be speakers and representative from the most well recognised companies in the world, such as Unilever, Nestle, Mondelez, Scotch Whisky Association, PepsiCo, Coca Cola, Pernod Ricard, Red Bull Asia and many others.
Together with one of the most experienced person in EU regarding the fight against food fraud, John Coady, Chief Audit Manager in the Food Safety Authority of Ireland (FSAI) and member of the FSAI’s multi-agency Food Fraud Task Force, I will speak in a panel full of case study about recent food frauds events and tips about what is going on at EU level. As Vice President EU Business and Regulatory affairs at Inscatech, I will give you some hints about how to protect your business from food frauds and about the pivotal role of the intelligence in preventing those events.
