We are delighted to be a Partner of the Global Food Law Current Issues conference, taking place in June 2018 at Michigan State University.
We are pleased to share this overview of the conference from the organisers:
The Current Issues in Global Food Law conference explores the interconnectedness, relationships and impact of food law, food science, industry and consumers.
Bringing together members of industry and the regulatory world as well as students, alumni, and faculty, the conference will increase attendees’ understanding of today's food law issues, tomorrow's opportunities, and the future challenges facing the global food industry.
Conference attendees include students in MSU's Global Food Law program, alumni, and leaders in the food industry seeking to expand their knowledge and networks. Presenters and attendees are joining from around the globe to discuss global food law inside six broad topic areas:
- Intellectual Property, Food Laws, and Global Food Security
- Biotech and Novel Foods
- Counterfeiting and Brand Protection
- Enforcement and Crisis Management
- Emerging Threats and Trends
Keynote speakers, moderated panels, and concurrent sessions will look at each topic from a variety of perspectives. Time for questions and dialogue has been built into each session. The conference is structured to afford participants numerous opportunities to present their ideas, address concerns and discuss strategies for addressing current issues in global food law in detail. Breaks, concurrent sessions, strategy sessions and evening social events are designed to facilitate networking and expansion of circles of influence.
