CLE International is holding their 2nd Annual Food Law Conference in Austin, Texas at the Omni Downtown May 11 and 12. The feedback provided by attendees at their inaugural Food Law Conference in 2016 confirms that executives, attorneys, professors, nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) and other stakeholders in food and the food industry are hungry for the latest information on the legal and other issues that food presents. The food landscape is rapidly changing as an increasingly engaged and educated customer base, as well as rapidly developing new technologies, redefine the business to which the food industry must adapt. Hear from front-line practitioners, regulators, academics as well as other influencers and stakeholders about what is in store in the year ahead.

Sugar Sweetened Law: Legal Efforts to Reduce Sugar Consumption
