Why Should You Attend:

Today, the foods Americans consume rarely come from the state in which they live. The vast majority of all companies behind the labels on raw agricultural commodities, Ready to Eat foods, and Commercially Packaged Goods are, by nature, multi-facility, multi-state entities. As such, federal policies enforced by state regulatory agencies, are open to a wide range of interpretation and implementation protocols.

With the 2011 passage and 2016 implementation of the FDA Food Safety Modernization Act, Congress intended the FDA to collaborate and coordinate through state, tribal, and territorial agencies and resources to create an integrated food safety system or partnership. What was once described as ‘putting a 50-piece puzzle together to make a picture of this integrated system,’ is more like taking one piece each from 50 different puzzle boxes and trying to make a coherent picture.

This course is designed to bring food industry leaders up to speed with the latest research in states’ food regulatory characteristics. The goal is to enable industry leaders to better understand and navigate through the state-by-state nuances.
