Forced Labor in the Food & Beverage Industry: Risks & Measures In-House Counsel Need to Consider

Keeping forced labor out of the supply chain is something most food and beverage companies are having to address or consider. In light of the recent Uyghur Forced Labor Prevention Act and the increasing attention by the press, consumers, and regulators to the abusive, dangerous, and exploitative conditions in supply chains, particularly on the food and beverage industry, Greenberg Traurig attorneys Justin Prochnow and Laura Rabinowitz will discuss the legal risks, as well as what food and beverage companies can do to mitigate them.

Topics to be covered:
  • Diligence in purchasing practices and reviewing your supply chain
  • Import regulations and best practices
  • Measures in-house counsel can take to manage risk and reduce additional costs
  • Labelling and marketing protocols concerning “ethically sourced” and “sustainably sourced”
