Regulatory: PFAS Chemicals in Food and Packaging – The Next Legal Frontier is Behind Us
Please join our expert panel as we discuss the regulation of per- and polyfluoroalkly substances (PFAS) in the food, agriculture and beverage industry. PFAS chemicals are the target of significant regulatory controls due to environmental persistence and bioaccumulation potential - hazards that may affect both human and environmental health. We will help answer your questions on what is and isn’t regulated, why PFAS are being limited or prohibited, how PFAS laws apply to define terms like “intentionally added” and “processing aids,” how background levels are evaluated, testing methods, the trending regulatory landscape, responding to supplier contracts, reliance on vendor representations and certification requirements We will save time for questions and answers so that our panel can help you manage your PFAS programs, avoid the pitfalls and implement best practices.

Insolvency Issues in the Food, Beverage, and Agribusiness Industry – Protecting Your Interests in an Uncertain Economy
Disruption persists in the food, beverage, and agribusiness industry. In 2023, restaurant chain and other food-related insolvencies are surging. It is not uncommon for debtors to owe significant sums to vendors on the date of their bankruptcy filing. But what happens when the debtor demands you continue to provide goods and services despite the unpaid balance? Join us to discuss critical vendor issues that arise in bankruptcy cases, including post-petition performance, potential preference actions, and the protections available to vendors and creditors under the Bankruptcy Code.
