Why Should You Attend:

  • We have a duty, but to whom?
  • We conduct cost/benefit analyses, but whose costs and whose benefits?

An ethical dilemma does not exist unless someone stands to gain, while another stands to lose.

At the root of all issues are ethical dilemmas, the outcomes of which may have an economic impact on some stakeholders, a public health impact on a community, or result in a lack of compliance with state, federal, or industry standards. This course is designed to bring food industry leaders face to face with case study examples of ethical dilemmas and their outcomes. The goal is to enable industry leaders to better understand the true burden of disease, as well as the economic and judicial outcomes of recent events.
