Brexit: Where do we go from here?

In this webinar we will be looking at preparing for post-transition Brexit having studied UK and EU publications checking for changes particularly applicable to the food industry and we will be outlining a checklist of things you need to be aware of to avoid your products being held up crossing the border from the UK to the EU and vice versa. These cover everything from labelling through tariff and non-tariff barriers onto transport facilities and more.

Botanical Ingredients in Europe, North America and APAC

With consumers expressing a keen interest in botanicals due to perceived health benefits; manufacturers are taking a keen interest in incorporating a wide range of these ingredients, such as ashwagandha, turmeric and maca, into their food supplements and beverages. However, there continues to be a lack of regulatory clarity as well as non-harmonisation of the regulations across the different markets.  In this presentation, we will provide an overview of the current regulatory landscapes in these markets, as well as critical steps that manufacturers must undertake to ensure safety and regulatory compliance of their products.
