Are you a rosé BAE? No? Great, you’re invited. Join us as we dive deep into four unique growing regions and taste how the rosé market has influenced our farming practices and winemaking techniques. Or has it? Are we chasing consumers or training their palettes? Winemakers and viticulturists jointly share their techniques in managing desired crop loads, color choice and price points in a competitive market. Hear about the latest trends in packaging and what’s moving fastest off the shelf.
The Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) has been around for a few years now, and whether you’re working to get your program up to speed or needing to put some finishing touches on it, this session will have something for you.
This session will include a “workshop-style” portion where you’ll learn you what you really need to do to be compliant, and how you can be prepared for an inspection visit. You will also hear about the new regulations coming into force, as well as picking up compliance tips as you hear how inspections have been going for the industry. There will also be a Q&A session where experts will answer your questions regarding this important piece of legislation.
