Food & Beverage Sector Event:  Strategy Institute 10th Annual Food Regulatory & Quality Assurance Summit

EMC is pleased to be partnering once again with the Strategy Institute who will be hosting its 10th Annual Food Regulatory and Quality Assurance Summit in Toronto on October 29th and 30th, 2019! 

There is a very robust program planned for this year’s Summit and one of the topics of interest featured this year will explore requirements around Cannabis Edibles.  There are changes coming to the Cannabis Regulations this Fall and that in turn will lead to the development and marketing of many new products in that regard.  If you are exploring opportunities in this sector, this particular session will be looking at regulations around the production and preparation of edibles and other cannabis infused products, clarifying labeling and packaging requirements, and defining the limits on additional ingredients added to cannabis edibles.  It promises to be a very interesting and informative session!

The Speaker for this part of the Program is Sara Zborovski of Norton Rose Fulbright.  Sara practises regulatory and commercial law for companies regulated by Health Canada and assists clients in navigating the regulatory landscape implemented by the Food and Drugs Act, the Cannabis Act and other legislation and associated regulations overseen by Health Canada and the intersection of these with commercial and intellectual property laws. She has developed a deep understanding of the regulatory and business realities within which these industries operate through her involvement with industry trade associations, thought leadership, and regular communication with various branches of Health Canada. 

Topics included in Agenda:

Navigating SFCR Implementation | New Nutrition Labelling Regulations | Blockchain and Emerging Technologies | Fine-Tuning Supplier Verification Transparency | Compliance Commitment | Brand Trust and Protection | Product Communication Plans | Sustainable Approaches | Compliance and Marketing Strategies
