There is no question – as the food supply becomes more global, the chance of contamination increases. The latest food outbreaks come from non-traditional pathogens and foods that came from overseas – the number of affected people is still unknown. In addition, the increasing reliance on international suppliers has led to a host of supply chain food safety issues that are increasingly difficult to monitor and combat.
Beef, leafy greens, cantaloupe, peanut butter, and pomegranate seeds are just a few of the products that have led to significant cost and litigation for food companies. With a series of proposed and final FSMA rules, the Obama Administration continues its sweeping reform of our food safety laws.
ACI’s 7th National Forum on Food-Borne Illness Litigation, in San Francisco this January 2014, will show you how to assess, manage and defend against the rising tide of food-borne illness litigation. Through an expert faculty representing both the plaintiffs and defendants in these cases, this conference will provide even the most seasoned professionals with the most cutting edge, comprehensive review of the paramount food contamination issues facing the food distribution and manufacturing industry.
You cannot miss out on the unique opportunity to gain highly specialized, up-to-the-minute information. No other conference allows you to benchmark with the leaders in the industry who shape the future of food-borne illness policy and litigation.
