Technical updates on regulations – EU market

Presented by Mark Moss, Senior Consultant, Leatherhead Food Research

An overview of the recent regulations and guidance from The European Commission, highlighting the impact along the food supply chain from raw materials to consumer communications will be provided; pointers for sustainability will also be flagged, helping inform your R&D strategies. For instance, what are the revisions to the Packaging and Packaging Waste Directive, and what are their implications? We will also provide a short summary of some emerging discussions that may gain traction over the next three years, potentially feeding into regulatory events.

Technical updates on regulations – UK market

Presented by Agota Ditchfield, Consultant, Leatherhead Food Research

It is now 18+ months since the UK exited the European Union, and the UK Parliament has been taking control of food regulations and guidance. We provide an overview of the new Regulations and Bills impacting the UK’s food, beverage and supplement industry. We also examine those supporting sustainability drivers, for example the implications of the mandatory requirements for recycling logos for disposal of plastic packaging. To wrap this up, we will also provide a short summary of some emerging discussions that may gain traction over the next three years, potentially creating some new additions or amendments.

Technical updates on regulations – International markets

Presented by Felicia Frances, Consultant, Leatherhead Food Research

As more and more food & beverage companies are scaling up their operations on an international scale, it becomes even more imperative to gain insight into international regulations. We present an overview of recent regulations in key markets, from the USA to Japan, supporting local compliance requirements and sustainability activities. For instance, an update on Food Contact Materials Positive List and its implications in Japan will be provided. Lastly, a brief overview of emerging discussions that may lead to some regulatory considerations will be provided.
