In light of recent regulatory and continuing private litigation, ACI’s Food & Beverage Marketing and Advertising Summit provides a prime opportunity for marketing and advertising attorneys who practice within the food and beverage industry to gain specific advice on how to structure, implement and maintain regulatory-compliance and litigation-proof marketing and advertising practices.

Don’t miss this rare opportunity to hear from the NAD, CARU, CFBAI and industry leaders from Cargill Company, Herbalife, J.M. Smucker Company, Pepsi Co., TreeHouse Foods, Unilever US, and many more, in addition to highly esteemed food and beverage outside counsel from around the country.

…The results indicate that these 40 industry-leading brands [restaurants, food, and beverage] do not respond to the majority of consumer tweets. Complaints directed at a brand’s account are the most likely to receive a reply. The study did not identify a single reply to an untagged complaint.

Indeed, multiple studies note the tangible benefits of responding to the consumers. It’s clear that restaurant, food & beverage brands are missing important opportunities to mitigate crises and amplify praise by engaging with their audience.
