For Immediate Release Monday 19 June 2017

Today is the final opportunity to register for FOOD INTEGRITY 2017, the conference in Auckland at the end of the month exploring how to keep New Zealand’s food exports safe and maximise brand profits.

Dr Jennifer van de Ligt, from the Food Protection & Defense Institute, a US Department of Homeland Security Centre of Excellence, William Marler, Managing Partner of Washington’s Marler Clark and specialist food borne illness litigator and Li Wei, Chair of China’s Goke Agricultural Machinery and Yimu Technology and an Executive Director of the China Milk Association – are among a stellar line-up of international food protection experts who will address the two-day conference.

Organiser Dr Helen Darling says the conference is an opportunity for New Zealand food exporters to gain an understanding of the measures other countries are taking to protect their food chains and make sure that their systems operate in a complementary manner.

The 2017 Food Integrity Conference is presented in association with AJ Park, one of Australasia’s leading intellectual property law firms. Expert IP lawyer, Anton Gibson of AJ Park will speak at the conference about the evolution of food, innovation and IP.

Food Integrity 2017 Is being followed by a one day Professional Intentional Food Adulteration Course.
