IDFA experts and regulatory decision-makers presented sessions devoted to understanding the intent behind federal regulations, the parameters for compliance and how best to engage in the process to shape pending regulations.

As one of the most highly regulated food industries in the United States, dairy must comply with regulations issued by multiple federal agencies, including the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, the U.S. Department of Agriculture, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and the U.S. Department of Commerce, among other state and local regulatory bodies. IDFA’s Regulatory RoundUP connects dairy professionals with regulatory officials who have direct responsibility for the rules affecting dairy plants, products, and personnel.

Each session focused on an issue of critical importance to dairy and offer opportunities for attendees to ask questions and engage with the presenters.
