BevNET Podcast Ep. 10/11: Legal. Design. Let’s Go.

BevNET Summer 2016 brought together some of the best and brightest minds in beverage industry. We thought it best to take advantage of the opportunity and invite a couple of those bright minds — Justin Prochnow and Fred Hart — to join us on the podcast.

In Episode 10 of the BevNET Podcast, we sit down with Justin Prochnow, a partner at Greenberg Traurig, to discuss current legal and regulatory issues affecting the beverage industry. We speak with Prochnow, an expert in legal requirements for labeling, about changes to the Nutrition Facts panel, which were revealed by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in May. Prochnow also discusses the FDA’s guidance on use of “evaporated cane juice” on ingredient labels, the agency’s view of the term being “false or misleading,” and what it means for food and beverage companies that are using the term.

The following podcast features a captivating discussion with Fred Hart, the creative director at Interact, a Boulder-based branding and design firm. Hart offers his take on cutting edge design trends and spoke about a recent visit to Mexico City where he found inspiration for new methods of design and storytelling. He also shares an engrossing account of Interact’s work on a packaging and label refresh for Dogfish Head Brewery.
