IDFA's Regulatory RoundUP will be held Tuesday, June 16, through Wednesday, June 17, 2015.

2. Why should I attend the Regulatory RoundUP?
Because new and pending dairy regulations have such a broad and deep impact on our industry, IDFA feels strongly that our members need to stay a step ahead of upcoming regulatory issues. IDFA’s Regulatory RoundUP Conference is your best opportunity to learn the status of new regulations, a place to hear what kinds of regulatory issues are on the horizon and a time to communicate directly with the regulatory leaders who actually guide the formation of the new rules.
The RoundUP is 2 days of information-packed, interactive sessions between dairy industry professionals and key government regulators. Each session is designed to educate participants about the regulatory process, pending regulations and upcoming regulatory issues. They will also provide a forum for regulators to hear your comments and concerns.

IDFA’s Regulatory RoundUP is geared toward dairy company and plant professionals who are responsible for understanding and complying with dairy regulations and the suppliers who work  with dairy plants to meet and exceed federal, state and local standards for dairy food manufacturing.
