FTA Forum 2013
The food safety session will focus on the regulations, certifications, and food safety initiatives that are fast becoming a must for the modern food packager. Dubbed "Life is Full of Options … Complying with Food Safety is Not One of Them!, the session will provide much more than a simple glimpse into food safety.
Session chairs Bruce Riddell, Spectrum Label Corporation, and Dan Doherty, Prairie State Group, have assembled an expert panel to explain how food safety affects the entire food packaging supply chain. The roster of presenters includes a consumer product company (CPC) spokesman and experts in the field of food safety certifications.
At the Expanded Gamut Printing (EGP) session, attendees will hear from three industry experts as they describe the "where, how, and why" Expanded Gamut is today, with integrated presentations covering key aspects of the technology's growth and maturation. Chaired by Brad Taylor, DuPont Packaging Graphics, and Mike McGinnis, RR Donnelley, the Expanded Gamut session will provide insights into the current market share, how it has evolved over the past few years, and if in fact, Expanded Gamut proofing has kept pace with the growth.
"The Expanded Gamut session promises an intriguing reprise of the talk given by Mark Samworth four years ago addressing the question, "Has Expanded Gamut technology tipped?," says Taylor. "We'll focus on the critical supporting technology of Expanded Gamut proofing in a separate talk, and lead off by addressing current market penetration data and standards for Expanded Gamut. This session of three integrated talks will complement the message delivered in last year's unique panel session."
