Date & Time:

12:00 pm – 1:00 pm


Leading a food processing operation requires a complex set of leadership and operational skills. Also needed: an understanding of the unique legal and liability risks that you, as a responsible corporate officer, face when you assume a role at the top of the org chart.

In this session, our presenters will explore:

  • A summary of the Park doctrine and how the FDA is relying on it to seek misdemeanor convictions of food industry executives for a company’s food safety violations of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act, regardless of what an executive knew about the violations.
  • The criteria FDA has considered when evaluating whether the agency will pursue liability for a responsible corporate official.
  • An overview of the Blue Bell Creameries matter, including the pending criminal enforcement matters.
  • Protecting your personal assets: The role Directors and Officers liability insurance (D&O) plays in protecting your personal assets. D&O is one of the most important, yet least understood coverages.

This session is ideally suited for:

C-Suite and Owners of food, feed and pet food companies, Legal Counsel, Food Safety Consultants

Featured Speaker:

Jeanne Flanagan
Director of Management Liability
