UK – Global food law challenges and opportunities seminar (19th September 2017)

On 19th September 2017 I have been invited as speaker to a very interesting one-day-seminar that will touch several key topics of the UK/EU food law, including food fraud prevention.

The seminar is organised by Campden BRI and will be held in their HQ in Chipping Campden, Gloucestershire.

Here you can see the full program and the speaker’s list, including Klaudyna Terlicka, Noelia Rodrigo and Jonathan Coleman from Campden BRI and Andrew Iveson (Amivet Ltd Veterinary Exports).

Summary

Maintaining an awareness of current food and drink legislation, understanding its implications and remaining alert to changes is increasingly challenging. Although progress has been made to harmonize legislation and enforcement and many food–related matters are regulated at the level of the European Union, Eurasian Economic Union, Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) or Codex Alimentarius, national disparities can still be seen. A ‘one size fits all’ approach for the creation of products that comply with each market is not possible.

A further challenge is the UK’s movement towards independence from the European Union and what this might mean for the UK’s food industry.

For this seminar, Campden BRI assembled an expert team to give us their perspectives and cover emerging international food regulatory topics as they may well become more important as the regulatory landscape changes. This seminar will also provide a unique opportunity to discuss the most recent regulatory updates and trends from global perspective.

Key areas to be covered

  • Global food law trends.
  • Key export challenges, including case studies.
  • Food fraud: international perspective.
  • Global labelling differences, with particular focus on allergens, country of origin, nutrition labelling and claims.
  • Brexit and potential implications for international trade.

Key benefits of attending

  • A unique opportunity to discuss most recent updates and trends from global perspective.
  • Global regulatory awareness might become increasingly important as the UK moves on and it would be instructive to hear what is going on outside of the EU.
  • Case studies, practical applications and tools to understand and overcome export challenges.
  • Interactive discussions and great networking opportunities.

I will travel around UK for few days, so if you will participate to the seminar or would like to meet for a coffee, please drop me a not at foodlawlatest@gmail.com
