This is the unofficial blog of the LL.M. Program in Agricultural & Food Law at the University of Arkansas School of Law.
We study the law of food and agriculture from farm to fork, from the perspective of the farmer, the retailer, and the consumer.
Concern about the safety and sustainability of the global food system makes agricultural and food law studies one of the most vibrant areas of legal practice and policy analysis.

LL.M. Alumna Amy White given The Compass Achievement Award
Amy White was recently given the Compass Achievement Award for her work on Walmart's "best if used by" initiative for private brand items. Amy serves as Senior Manager of Food Labeling at Walmart, working under Frank Yiannas, Vice President of Food Safety on the labeling initiative. The Award recognizes Amy for "outstanding achievement to execute a date labeling initiative that reduced food waste and lessened the likelihood of all-justified regulatory violation."
Walmart has received international recognition for its efforts to reduce food waste through improved package labeling, with Amy's efforts at the forefront. More on Walmart's labeling initiative can be found the U.S. edition of the The Guardian newspaper.
Amy's award was presented to her by Jay Jorgensen, Executive Vice President, Global Chief Ethics, and Compliance Officer for WalMart.
