Connect the dots of food regulatory law and gain a clear understanding of how the FDA, USDA and FTC work together to regulate the food industry.

Food and Food Ingredient Classification…GRAS…food labeling requirements as opposed to the actual food label… marketing and promotion… food safety regulations…FSMA… cGMPs… imports… inspections…recalls… all are critical aspects of the food commercialization process and they all in some way are governed by an agency troika consisting of FDA, USDA and FTC. The passage of new laws and the implementation of new regulations concerning food as well as high profile laws suits and related controversies have made it abundantly clear that it is essential for attorneys who do not have regulatory practices — but who deal with food products — to have an intimate familiarity with these topics and agency protocols. The changing business dynamics of the food industry have also made it critical for business executives, policy analysts and securities experts who work with food to have a greater working knowledge of key regulatory concepts as well as the applicable governing agencies.

Litigation as well as numerous other legal, business and policy considerations often hinge on what happened somewhere in the regulatory process.

Many products liability lawyers, business and investment experts and corporate executives — despite their tenure in working with food products are not well versed in the essentials of food law and regulation and applicable agencies. Whether you are a products liability/mass tort attorney, business analyst, corporate executive, or someone new to the food industry, ACI’s Food Law and Regulation Boot Camp will provide you with the information that you need.
