In keeping with Sabinsa’s long-standing practice of calling upon the industry to source quality ingredients, Sabinsa President and COO Jim Cudahy will co-present an educational session to help ingredient buyers increase their expertise. The session, entitled "Your Suppliers Can Kill You, "will be co-presented by veteran regulatory attorney Marc Ullman on September 25th from 10:15 AM -11:30 AM at Supply At Expo East on level 2, room 254A.
This seminar will delve into what information buyers should require from their raw material suppliers prior to even placing their first order. Understanding what suppliers are doing and how they are making the ingredients can save a company from a GMP failure or even a recall.
Jim Cudahy is the President and COO of Sabinsa Corporation. Mr. Cudahy has over 27 years of experience in the CPG industry, including two Fortune 100 companies, focused on food and dietary supplements.
Marc Ullman, a partner at New York based Ullman, Shapiro & Ullman, LLP, represents clients in legal matters relating to Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) matters, regulatory issues, Federal Trade Commission (FTC) proceedings, and litigation.

Sabinsa has long been known as a strong advocate of sustainable, responsible industry business practices. "As an outspoken decrier of borrowed science, and a staunch protector of intellectual property, Sabinsa has encouraged industry to take a longer term view toward overall credibility," Cudahy said. "This session has a short term view, more of a ‘what’s in it for me’ message for attendees. What’s in it for them is how to stay in business now that GMP’s are in effect."
"I’m giving this seminar with Jim because we share a commitment to the long term health of the industry," Ullman said. "As someone who has never hesitated to speak out when industry practices needed to change, I welcome this opportunity to increase sourcing savvy."
In keeping with their belief that an educated buyer benefits the entire industry, Sabinsa is sponsoring the Supply@Expo educational sessions for Expo East.
