Using real life court cases and regulatory enforcement instances, Jonathan A. Havens, Esq., Vice Chair of Saul Ewing LLP’s Food and Beverage Practice examines litigation and enforcement trends, and what might be on the horizon; walks the audience through product claim development and substantiation, including common pitfalls to avoid; and discusses the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) food docket and its implications for industry.

In this engaging and useful session, Mr. Havens uses facts from recent food and beverage cases and recent instances of enforcement to provide practical takeaways to help the industry comply with applicable requirements and take defensible positions when developing food labels and product claims.
