Ricardo Geada to moderate panel about novel foods at ICBC Berlin

April 2024

Director and Head of Regulatory Solutions Ricardo Geada will moderate a panel at ICBC Berlin about the implementation and enforcement of the regulation of foods with cannabinoids in the EU.

The panelists, the European Medicinal Cannabis Association’s General Secretary Sita Schubert and Founder of Cannactions Consulting Ltd Constant Ma, will discuss complex regulatory frameworks involving regional regulations and overarching EU guidelines, noting how novel foods are treated differently within the European Union.

They will highlight disparate perspectives, as well as harmonization and authorization efforts in the EU, and the difficulties in establishing novel food status for hemp food ingredients and cannabinoids, including persistent challenges related to health claims, novel cannabinoids and inappropriate marketing.

The panel, titled ‘(Not) on the plate: EU’s Dilemma with Cannabinoids and Novel Food’ will take place at 11am CET on Tuesday, 16 April at the Estrel Hotel in Berlin.
