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.

He earned the distinctive PepsiCo Chairman’s Award in 2011 for outstanding contribution to successful sustainability initiatives at the company.
