Why Food Law is an Important Growing Field

Why Food Law is an Important Growing Field

To quickly summarize the importance behind Harvard’s new push to open a Food Law Lab:

  • “Sell by” and “best by” dates on food have no relationship to safety and are not federally regulated.  Americans throw 160 billion pounds of food a year.
  • World’s biggest pork producer was purchased by a Chinese company with a jaded history.
  • Some countries are now rejecting American grown products outright because of the controversial safety of genetically modified foods
  • Agribusiness and meat industry are polluting air and groundwater
  • Food workers don’t earn enough to feed their own families.
