Produce Packaging Seminar Offers Latest Information on Packaging Law and Design

Stay fresh with the latest information on packaging law and design by attending one of two upcoming Produce Packaging Seminars: June 7, 2017, in Visalia or June 20, 2017, in Sacramento. 

In the fresh produce industry, where products are perishable, food safety is critical, margins are tight, regulations are abundant, retailers are demanding and consumers are fickle, the challenges to creating the perfect package are considerable. From lost sales to product recalls to litigation and government actions, the costs of an imperfect package can also be considerable. The Produce Packaging Seminar will provide Western Growers members with the latest information on packaging law and design.

This half day seminar will delve into topics such as intellectual property and the importance of protecting your brand, food labeling compliance and the risks of litigation, offerings in packaging materials and choosing them wisely, and design techniques that make products stand out and engage consumers.

The seminar series, which is offered free of charge, is sponsored by Western Growers. Seminars will be held at the following locations and dates:

Wednesday, June 7: Wyndham Hotel – 9000 W Airport Dr, Visalia, CA 93277

Tuesday, June 20: Downey Brand LLP – 621 Capitol Mall # 18, Sacramento, CA 95814

All sessions will be from 9:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., and include lunch.
