So much of food & drink legislation is about ensuring that products comply with regulations in the here and now. However, it's important that companies explore what the future might look like to better understand uncertainties.

Horizon scanning is one of the tools that can help food & drink manufacturers analyze whether they are adequately prepared for potential opportunities and threats, helping ensure that strategies are resilient to different future environments.

At US Regulatory Day 2018, we take a look at horizon scanning in a regulatory context as well as give updates on current government and authority discussions in the US, EU, Japan, Codex and Brazil and how we think these will impact the regulatory landscape and other countries in the future.

The event also provides a great opportunity for members to stay up-to-date with recent and forthcoming changes in EU, UK and international food legislation, whilst networking across industry sectors.

We’ll also be hosting a networking evening dinner on September 26 in Central Washington; places will be allocated on a first come first served basis.

US Regulatory Day is exclusive to full members of Leatherhead Food Research.
