With the rapidly evolving circumstances surrounding the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, Keller and Heckman has made the difficult decision to postpone our 2020 San Francisco Practical Food Law Seminar scheduled for March 31 – April 2, 2020 in San Francisco, CA. We plan to secure the new conference dates and will announce them as soon as they are confirmed.
