Brand Integrity for Food & Ingredient Suppliers: Best Practices in Enforcement & Licensing

Venable's Andrew Pratt and Justin Pierce will host a VendorBrief on Brand Integrity for Food & Ingredient Suppliers: Best Practices in Enforcement & Licensing. Complying with FDA regulations can be a difficult process. Small wonder then that some companies choose to deal in unapproved ingredients or products that contain them. Agency scrutiny of so many companies is unlikely, which, in turn, allows these illicit markets to flourish. The hosts will discuss how the ITC can be a simple, fast and powerful solution, and how to effectively orchestrate court ‎actions and advocacy initiatives to counter unfair competition from unscrupulous ingredient suppliers.
