Packaging

We provide advice and guidance in all food packaging matters, including:

  • Development & Implementation of Compliance Strategies
  • Identification of Compliance Deficiencies
  • Labeling Review & Compliance
  • Product Crisis Management

Packaging and labeling requirements are constantly changing. You cannot afford to work with a lawyer who practices packaging law part-time or as a small component of their practice. We have investigated, managed, and implemented all aspects of FDA packaging law and requirements. We are the firm other lawyers call when their clients need a qualified packaging law attorney.

We advise and represent clients at every level of the food packaging industry. We work with large multi-national corporations, as well as small and medium-sized companies. Regardless of your size or your product, we will provide you with the guidance and assistance you need to ensure compliance.

IMPORT TARIFFS APPLY TO ONE THING OR ANOTHER

Import Tariffs Apply to One Thing or Another

By Eric F. Greenberg, Attorney-at-law

Import Tariffs Apply to One Thing or Another

Questions recently arose about whether a specific shape of pasta was actually a drinking straw.

The other day, my pal Larry Friedman, also a lawyer, sent me an article he had found about the shortage of bucatini pasta. It’s a funny article, available on grubstreet.com. Bucatini is a tubular pasta shape with a hole longways through the middle. Larry thought the story would interest me because it included discussion of the Food and Drug Administration’s “standard of identity” for macaroni. (This column has discussed such standards in the past).
