Not as free trade as you thought…

IFST Food Law Group event - Not as free trade as you thought...

With Brexit becoming imminent, more companies are showing an interest in the potential opportunities for free trade expansion of markets outside the EU. However, the legislative differences with these other markets must be considered before such trading can occur.

IFST Food Law Group will host an interactive seminar on 25 September 2018 to identify the practical legislative issues that must be taken into account when a company is considering expanding trade to non-EU markets, from product formulation through to packaging and labelling.

It is an opportunity to hear from the Department for International Trade on the pros and cons of trading with countries based outside the EU and to receive pointers regarding the main aspects that companies should consider. Two further experts in this field will then focus on key markets of interest: the USA and certain parts of the Asia region.
