10 Oct 20 SAAFoST webinar: The legal standing and consequences of disobeying foodbev legislation
SAAFoST is hosting a webinar titled “The legal standing and consequences of disobeying legal standards, regulations and labelling issues” on 29 October, to be hosted by patent attorney and professional engineer Janusz Luterek.
The recent Supreme Court case of whisky-flavoured spirit aperitif (whisky-flavoured vodka) has highlighted the need for strict compliance with labelling regulations and composition standards and the risks to manufacturers and the supply chain when these are contravened.
Similarly, the recent tightening of compliance enforcement by Port Health and the Department of Agriculture, Land Reform and Rural Development inspectors and assignees is a wake-up call to the industry as huge losses can be suffered as a result of non-compliance.
Join the discussion with Janusz Luterek (pictured above):
Janusz holds degrees in both Chemical Engineering from the University of Pretoria and Law from UNISA and is a registered Attorney, Patent Attorney, and a Professional Engineer and is a partner of Hahn & Hahn. Janusz is a Custodian Member of the South African Association for Food Science and Technology (SAAFoST) and recipient of the 2019 SAAFoST President’s Award.
