Several international food and beverage companies have temporarily shut down operations in Ukraine following Russia's invasion to ensure the safety of employees while bracing for the long-term economic impact that skyrocketing commodity prices and potential sanctions will have on their businesses.
Capitol News
The California Legislature reconvened on January 3, 2022, to begin the second half of a two-year session. Legislators faced a large stack of work left from the first half of the two-year session. More than 1,000 proposals introduced in 2021 were designated “two-year” bills and had a narrow window to be approved in their house of origin by the end of January. 
CLFP opposed several two-year bills that would have had an adverse impact on the food processing industry and stopped them from advancing to their second house. However, just because a two-year bill did not make the January 31 deadline for passage, does not preclude the bill from being reintroduced in 2022.

Computers and the internet, properly used, can be agents of information and efficiency. But used maliciously, they can be agents of terrorism and extortion. Cyberattacks on business in general, and the food industry in particular, have been proliferating, with at least five major food companies being hit with ransomware attacks since 2017.
