The quantity and quality of legislation relating to the production, consumption, and trade of food and wine has been growing over time. These policies and standards are being established not only by public authorities, be it at the national level, EU and at global level (WTO, FAO, WHO, Codex Alimentarius), but also by private parties. Many of these standards are of a technical nature and focus on safety, quality, consumer protection and consumer information.
This academy provides a deep dive into the emergence of an advanced, and rapidly developing legal, policy and global governance framework. It does so through a combination of thought-provoking, critical presentations, workshops and peer-to-peer learning opportunities offered by some leading thinkers and practitioners in this space.
The goal is to provide all participants with knowledge they can be applied immediately to influence food and wine policy, interpret international laws and regulations, and bridge the gap between regulators and industry.
A rich social and culinary programme complements and nurtures the academic conversation.
Practitioners, such as lawyers, in-house lawyers, trade associations’ representatives, researchers, and other professionals active in this area.
