Best of ABA: Food Industry Trends Toward Sustainability
Pooja Nair, Partner and Chair of ECJ’s Food, Beverage and Hospitality Department, and Jessica Kraus, an attorney in ECJ's Litigation Department, co-authored the article, "Food Industry Trends Toward Sustainability," which was featured in the September/October 2021 edition of GPSolo magazine.
