Host Kermit Nash, co-chair of Saul Ewing Arnstein & Lehr’s Food, Beverage and Agribusiness (FBA) Practice, speaks with Anthony Sepich, CEO of Firm client Pipeline Foods, a supplier of organic and non-GMO food and feed ingredients for the consumer packaged goods and livestock industries. They discuss Anthony’s long career in the food industry and how trends have changed over the past several decades, particularly with organic food and clean labels. Anthony addresses how consumer demand for organic products is on the rise, a trend which is only expected to grow. He also addresses topics such as mislabeling of foods imported into the U.S. (e.g., “organic” products that don’t meet USDA’s organic standard), and how communication about disruptions in the supply chain has recently gotten much better. Finally, Anthony explains how a global database that does a quick mass balance and is shared across the supply chain would go a long way in reducing fraudulent product.
