Examine the Shifting Regulatory Landscape During Alltech’s Symposium 2013

[LEXINGTON, Ky.] – Effective labeling can be a company’s best defense against litigation, while also acting as the bridge between a product and its consumers. Striking the balance between these two objectives requires investing in a strong regulatory department, equipped to meet the international challenges of a growing organization. GLIMPSE, the 29th Annual Alltech International Symposium in Lexington, Ky., USA, from May 19-22, offers insights from regulatory experts into the shifting landscape of international regulations and how changes in each region of the globe affect others.

“With a glimpse into the future, we see increasing consumer awareness and demands on food and feed safety,” said Erin Kennedy, regulatory affairs manager at Alltech.  “Join the regulatory session as we explore global developments on regulatory modernization and review the challenges of trade in a changing regulatory atmosphere.”

New in 2013, Alltech International Symposium delegates will have the opportunity to select breakout session tracks. These tracks, as opposed to traditional species or subject breakouts, will offer attendees a more holistic experience in which they take part in discussions ranging from algae and agriculture’s carbon footprint to nutrition and marketing.

The Regulatory track includes discussion on:

  • Free Trade Agreements and Challenges in Enforcement
  • Global Standards and Plans for Modernization
  • Hidden Dangers in Feed
  • Adverse Conditions and Implication on Trade

There will also be an interactive discussion dinner titled: A Glimpse into the Minds of Regulators: Helping or hurting? Lessons for agribusiness.

Registration for Alltech’s 29th Annual International Symposium is $850. Two paid registrations from a single company or organization will receive a third registration free of charge. Delegates who are members of ARPAS and AAVSB can also earn CEUs.

Attendees are encouraged to register early as space is limited. Of the nearly 3,000 international delegates who attended the 2012 Alltech International Symposium, 97 percent indicated that they plan to attend again.
