Campden BRI to host food and drink legislation seminar

Maintaining an awareness of current food and drink legislation, understanding its implications and remaining alert to changes is increasingly challenging, notes Campden BRI. Although progress has been made to harmonise legislation and enforcement, and many food-related matters are regulated at the level of the European Union, Eurasian Economic Union, Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) or Codex Alimentarius, national disparities can still be seen, the company says: a ‘one size fits all’ approach for the creation of products that comply with each market is not possible.

A further challenge, Campden continues, is the UK’s movement towards independence from the European Union and what this might mean for the UK’s food industry.

A Campden BRI seminar, to be held on 19 September, will combine expert perspectives with discussion to cover emerging international food regulatory topics and regulatory landscape changes, including:

+ Global food law trends

+ Key export challenges, including case studies

+ Food fraud: international perspective

+ Global labeling differences, with particular focus on allergens, country of origin, nutrition labeling and claims

+ Brexit and potential implications for international trade
