Dear SAAFoST member,

SAAFoST (South African Association for Food Science and Technology) is hosting a webinar titled "The legal standing and consequences of disobeying legal standards, regulations and labelling issues" on 29 October at noon. Join us for a riveting presentation by Patent Attorney and Professional Engineer Janusz F. Luterek.



The recent Supreme Court case of whisky-flavoured spirit aperitif (whisky-flavoured vodka) has highlighted the need for strict compliance with labelling regulations and composition standards and the risks to manufacturers and the supply chain when these are contravened. The recent tightening of compliance enforcement by Port Health and the Department of Agriculture, Land Reform and Rural Development inspectors and assignees is a wake-up call to the industry as huge losses can be suffered as a result of non-compliance. Join the discussion about the legal standing and consequences of disobeying legal standards, regulations and labelling issues with Janusz F. Luterek. Read more about Janusz
