This year's Food Packaging Summit will offer a range of programming critical to specialists in regulatory affairs plus great opportunities to network on a festive night out in Austin and a cleanup of Lady Bird Lake. The educational program will open with a roundtable discussion on approaches to evaluating impurities in food contact materials. Government and industry representatives from the US and EU will explore similarities and differences across the Atlantic and practical due diligence considerations for manufacturers. The program will continue with an overview of the current scientific and regulatory landscape surrounding suspected endocrine disruptors. PLASTICS sustainability experts will follow with a roundtable on opportunities and challenges related to materials recovery and emerging bioplastics technologies.  The program will conclude with a panel session on communicating about packaging safety with current and future consumers, featuring expert analysis of trends in packaged food and foodservice consumption as well as a demo of PLASTICS' new advocacy and communications tool.  FDCPMC members are invited to the Full Committee Business Meeting that will follow to discuss global regulatory developments and related FDCPMC activities.  Join us for what promises to be a fun three days of learning!
