Midwest Laboratories, a national leader in regulatory, governmental, commercial and consumer testing services, is hosting the first-ever “Voices in Food Production” symposium on Nov. 14.

The inaugural event, which takes place at Happy Hollow Country Club, brings together experts from across the Midwest to discuss the regulations impacting food and beverage companies, and the steps they can take to remain compliant. Topics will include the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA), nutritional labeling, allergens and shelf life.

“Many of our clients have voiced concerns about their companies’ need to be compliant with current regulatory requirements,” said Brent Pohlman, president of Midwest Laboratories. “As the food industry continues to evolve, we are continually seeking new ways to deliver quality, comprehensive information that empowers our clients to remain one step ahead, and we see the symposium as another way to do that.”

Speakers include Michelle Wright, independent consultant in Food Regulation and Labeling; Jane Caldwell, Ph.D., assistant technical director for Midwest Laboratories; Julie Neuhalfen, independent consultant and food safety and quality specialist; and Cornelius Hugo, Ph.D., food safety professional for AIB International.

“I am thrilled to participate in the Voices in Food Production symposium,” said Wright, keynote speaker. “It’s important for food and beverage companies to be aware of upcoming nutrition labeling changes and impending requirements for food packaging. By coming together to share valuable insights, we can help companies remain compliant in today’s ever-changing food industry.”
