The CBA's new Food Law Committee is excited to present its inaugural program, dedicated to food law and regulations in Illinois. The body of law that governs the development, production, distribution and sale of food is constantly changing. Illinois ranks high among the states for food production and is home to many food companies, both large and small. This seminar is essential to practitioners who work with food companies in Illinois and who counsel entrepreneurs interested in starting food-related businesses. This seminar is also aimed at non-lawyers who work in the food industry or who consult with food companies in Illinois.

Some of the topics to be covered include:

  • Overview of the Illinois Department of Agriculture
  • Food inspection in Illinois
  • Regulation of organics and specialty crops in Illinois
  • New food product development in Illinois
  • among others
