Industry Experts to Present at Food Safety and Pest Management 2013

RK Environmental has announced new details about the upcoming Food Safety and Pest Management 2013 conference.

| June 17, 2013

WESTWOOD, N.J. - An array of food and pest management specialists will share their considerable knowledge at a premier event October 2-3 at the breathtaking Trump Taj Mahal Casino Hotel in Atlantic City, New Jersey. Food Safety and Pest Management 2013, hosted by RK Environmental and Comprehensive Food Safety, is an event not to be missed for anyone who works in the food or pest management industries, organizers said. Day 1 is dedicated to food safety while Day 2 will focus on issues involving pest management for food safety. This preeminent event is the industry’s fastest-growing food safety seminar.

Discussing the legal aspect of food safety, problem-solving attorney Robert D. Towey is one of the featured speakers. A partner at Lowenstein Sandler law firm, the experienced cum laude law school graduate brings in-depth and comprehensive legal expertise to food, beverage and manufactured goods industries. Towey is a member of the New Jersey Food Counsel—at which he frequently serves as committee speaker—and is involved with the Grocery Manufacturers Association. Nominated by peers and named a “Super Lawyer” for 2013 and four previous years, Towey has written articles for many notable publications, including Food Manufacturing.
 
Another Day 1 key speaker will be Reggie Nayar—an expert in turning waste to profit, with 20 years of experience working with top companies such as PepsiCo and Frito Lay. He earned the distinctive PepsiCo Chairman’s Award in 2011 for outstanding contribution to successful sustainability initiatives at the company. His passion for sustainability led Nayar to found his own consulting firm, Innovative Waste Solutions, through which he continued to work with PepsiCo and its vendors to achieve a zero-waste goal and create the corporation’s Global Waste Minimization Program implemented this year.
