Government Affairs & Education Committee Update

IFSA's Government Affairs and Education Committee (GAEC) monitors global regulatory and legislative issues impacting the industry. Check out the latest updates below:

IFSA GAEC will exhibit at the upcoming EXPO. Be sure to stop by booth #535 to get more information on activity and regulations, ask questions, and to learn more how to get involved!

IFSA airline and caterer members are invited to attend a meeting during the EXPO. The purpose of the meeting is to have an open forum for airlines and caterers discuss feasible options for labeling. Also key to this discussion and to the FDA is to ensure that passengers receive the information they need, and an assurance that consumers know how to access such information. Airlines and caterer members will receive invitations directly. Results of the meeting will be reported to the membership.
