Presentation Topic:  Out of the Frying Pan and Off the Fire: Global Politics Looking to Take Meat off the Menu” will be led by Karl Brophy, the Founder and CEO of Red Flag, a global risk analysis and campaigning agency.  With Brophy’s experience and knowledge of working with some of the world's largest corporations and industry associations he has great insights to share regarding global political trends. The once niche topics of food science, nutrition and safety have changed dramatically.  International bodies like the World Health Organization and dogmatic activists are increasingly influencing food regulation using skilled communication techniques.  Where have we been? What have we learned? And how are we going to counter these trends?
