CONFERENCE PRESENTATION

With a growth in free trade agreements and the decline of traditional trade barriers, the Asian countries have emerged into one of the most promising regions for food and beverage companies to find new markets for export, however, the complex regulatory frameworks in many Asian jurisdictions often impose big obstacles.

High-profile lecturers from industry, food associations and private legal practice will provide you with a general overview of Food Law in Asia, update you on the legal frameworks in China, India and South Korea and share with you their knowledge and useful tips.

The conference on Food Law in Asia will be followed by a new event on Food Law in the US, shedding light on topics such as export of food and alcoholic beverages to the US, labelling, food recalls, health claims and reforms implemented through the Food Safety Modernisation Act (FSMA).

Both conferences are aimed at food industry representatives interested in export as well as professionals dealing with US and Asian food law on a regular basis. You can benefit from a discount for double-registration and use the opportunity to meet and discuss with food law experts from Europe, Asia and the US.

The conferences will include also practical workshops about how to draft a label for specific countries (e.g. China, India) and high level networking will be eased by the conference format and the wonderful time that you will spend in Rome.
