Food Safety Seminar Series

Given the rising importance placed on food safety, the Foreign Trade Association, iwhich is headquartered in the Greater Los Angeles area, is hosting a two-part series providing an international perspective on food safety. Laws and regulations are rapidly changing in the U.S. and worldwide. Find out the latest about those changes in Australia, the U.S., and Canada from an international panel of speakers: Andrew Hudson of Hunt and Hunt in Melbourne, Australia; Cyndee Todgham Cherniak of Lang Michener in Toronto, Canada; and Susan Kohn Ross of Mitchell Silberberg & Knupp in the U.S. , all contributors to this blog.

Topics to be discussed will include the latest legislative efforts and regulatory changes in all three countries, including good manufacturing practices, registration requirements and new/additional fees, and what operational changes/upgrades companies should consider in response. Where does one find the latest details about these rapidly evolving and significant changes? What are the new expectations being placed on industry? How do those expectations differ by product? How will these changes impact your company's bottom line?

The perspective from Australia and the U.S. will be presented on Sept. 15, 2009, at 1:00 p.m. PDT. The speakers will be Andrew Hudson and Su Ross. The Canadian perspective will be presented on December 3, 2009 at 10:00 a.m. PDT with an update on developments in the U.S. Cyndee Cherniak and Su Ross will speak at this session.
