Forum on Food Labeling: Putting the Label on the Table
The Harvard Law School Food Law Society's second annual conference was a part of the Society's mission to foster dialogue and exchange knowledge of emerging issues in food policy and regulation. The conference explored the legal and policy aspects of food labeling and its effects on consumer knowledge, choice, and behavior. The forum brought together a host of authorities on food law and policy to raise discussion on a number of pressing questions, including: What should we know about what's in our food and how it is grown? What considerations should inform these decisions? Are food labels a meaningful tool to encourage better nutrition choices?
