Our firm is really excited to send a team of women food law lawyers to participate in the Women in Agribusiness Summit taking place in Minneapolis this year. We’re currently on day 2 of the program, with great presentations on the schedule from representatives of Land O’Lakes, General Mills, Dow AgroScience, Zoetis, Monsanto, Cargill, Syngenta and many more.

Our Nicole Hancock presented yesterday along with Jacque Palmer, general counsel at Syngenta, on the topic of agribusiness litigation trends and best practices. The program concludes this evening with an executive roundtable moderated by Carol Kitchen, Senior Vice President/General Manager of Global Ingredients at Land O’Lakes, Inc.

Stay tuned to this blog for a follow-up report on the key food law issues discussed at the conference.
