Foley invites you to join us for our latest NewsFeed Web conference, which will focus on the implications of recent enforcement actions by the U.S. government against U.S. food processors/packers for failure to properly track the origin of imported food ingredients.

Our panel will discuss labeling requirements with respect to country of origin for food products packaged/processed in the United States with foreign origin ingredients, recent enforcement actions and liability for failure to properly handle imported food products, steps companies can take to protect supply chain integrity to avoid violations related to country of origin and U.S. Customs requirements, and the importance of establishing and maintaining robust internal compliance policies and procedures.

Web conference attendees will come away with a better understanding of the following:

  • Labeling requirements under Customs, FDA/USDA, and FTC regulations
  • Food processors’/packagers’ responsibility for imported ingredients, even when purchased in the United States
  • Improving supply chain integrity to avoid compliance problems with imported ingredients
  • The value of robust internal compliance programs in avoiding compliance issues related to imported ingredients

Speakers

  • Michael D. Flanagan, Partner
  • Lisa M. Noller, Partner
  • Richard H. Casper, Partner
