This is a professional symposium. Those academic dialogues and practical sharing enhance my understanding of food contact global compliance.

Recognised as the go-to event for the entire food contact value chain, Smithers' Food Contact Asia conference returns September 6-8, 2021 in Shanghai, China to once again ignite important discussion around the regulatory landscape and market demand for packaged food and beverage products, and new opportunities for global expansion across all sectors of the food contact materials supply chain.

Designed to give a comprehensive overview of all key food contact regulatory areas for those in the chemicals, plastics, materials and packaging sectors, Smithers' Food Contact Asia 2021 conference will provide a detailed guide to relevant legislations, what to expect in the future and how to prepare for it now, plus vital information on harmonisation and non-harmonisation across different countries.
