New laws affecting Mexican food exporters – What you need to know to sell food in the U.S.

Hogan Lovells will offer a free seminar on new U.S. food manufacturing, labeling, and inspection requirements that apply to any Mexican company exporting food to the U.S. These requirements cover both finished goods and ingredients.

Hogan Lovells U.S. partners Maile Hermida and Elizabeth Fawell will be visiting from Washington, D.C. to discuss these latest U.S. food law developments and how they affect all foreign companies that sell food to the U.S.

Who should attend?

Regulatory, quality control, and legal personnel from Mexican companies that export or intend to export food to the U.S.

Why attend?

Mexican companies that export food to the U.S. are required to follow U.S. requirements for manufacturing and labeling. They also are subject to inspection by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. Further, new U.S. requirements for U.S. food importers mean that Mexican food exporters will be subject to greater scrutiny by and questions from their customers. Failure to meet new U.S. food requirements can result in food being held up at the U.S. border and refused admission.
