Webinar Series: Morning Food for Thought at Baker McKenzie - Developments in Food Labelling Rules

Date & Time

June - September 2021 | 8:15 - 9:00 am CET

The food and beverage industry has witnessed a healthy growth over the past couple of years and consumers have become more nutritious conscious. One big trend is "plant-based" and "natural" food with consumers looking for healthier lifestyles. Another one is values and ethics, which means that consumers will look beyond the product itself and take into account the provenance of the product and their carbon-print when selecting one product over another.

In view of these developments and future trends, we would like to introduce you to our morning series of food labelling webinars focussing on legal implications: Morning Food for Thought at Baker McKenzie - Developments in Food Labelling Rules.

During these 45' sessions, we will frame practical legal issues, outline developments we see and then open up for questions and discussion with stakeholders from the food and beverage industry.

This webinar series is designed primarily for in-house legal counsels from the food & beverage industry, but may also be fruitful for anyone else that wants to broaden their knowledge. Each webinar is independent and self-contained.

Zoom platform will be used for this webinar series. Login instructions will be provided to all registered participants closer to the events. You can register for one or multiple episodes of the series. These webinars are free to attend.
