During CLFP’s Fall Board of Directors Meeting on October 22, the Board of Directors voted to approve a budget that would not include holding an in-person or virtual Food Processing Expo in 2021. Staff shared with the board that the current pandemic situation would make it likely that safety regulations and meeting gathering protocols would prohibit holding a safe and successful Expo.
CLFP has been holding a series of industry-specific webinars on timely topics and have attracted a large number of participants. The next seminar is “CV-SALTS New Wastewater Discharge Regulations” and will be held on October 29, 1:00 - 2:00 pm, in conjunction with Jacobson James & Associates.

This year’s Halloween, like every 2020 holiday, will be different; but one that shows how creative and resilient is the food and beverage industry—and especially its candy category.
