LUISS School of Law LL.M. in Food Law

The LUISS School of Law has recently launched a new LL.M. (Master of Laws) in Food Law in Rome.

Here you can have a look at the provisional program. The full list of teacher will be revealed soon, but I can anticipate that I will be giving lectures about the Rapid Alert System For Food and Feed functioning, the food misleading advertising practices and the food fraud challenges.

The program will prepare students to become qualified and effective food law advisors, equipping them with the knowledge and skills needed to deal with the most relevant legal aspects of Food Law in a genuine international perspective. It will run from October 2016 to June 2017. Lectures are organized on weekend formula (Friday from 2.00 to 8.00 pm – Saturday from 8.30 am to 1.30 pm) and are in English.

Further details can be found in the attached document (brochure).

Turin 16th-17th November 2015: US Business Forum – The Food Marketing in the US

To help businesses and professionals juggling in the difficult landscape of compliance and of export licenses issues, the Chamber of Commerce of Turin has organized a focus of two days dedicated to the US market.

The program includes, in the first day the 16th November, the involvement of a number of qualified American speakers, who will be personally present in Turin, to cover a large series of general themes and issues that affect the companies interested in this market.

The next day, November 17th, which I will participate as a speaker, it will be organized by the Turin Chamber of Commerce Chemical Laboratory and it will be dedicated to an intensive training on food export.

The food products export in the US requires preliminary verification of the requirements and regulations applicable to labeling, but also hygiene and food safety prescriptions has to be met. These requirements are widely different from those provided in the EU and must be respected for customs clearance and market products. The context in which the entrepreneur is operating is extremely complex and the competent authorities are different, depending on whether it relates to plant products or animal products.

There will be also an interesting session about food defense, held by Franco Aquilano of IsevenServizi, my trusted technical partners.
