FMI – The Food Industry Association has promoted Dana Graber to associate general counsel and senior director, legal and regulatory affairs.
“Anyone who has had the opportunity to work alongside Dana knows that she is an indispensable member of the FMI team,” said Stephanie Harris, chief regulatory officer and general counsel.
“She is a talented attorney who does a tremendous job helping our members navigate complex and demanding legal and regulatory responsibilities. We’re incredibly pleased to recognize Dana’s dedication to our membership through this promotion today.”
Graber joined FMI in 2016 as senior counsel for FMI’s government relations team. She provides support to members through regulatory tracking, development of regulatory strategy and compliance assistance. Her primary focus is labeling and promoting strategies that will result in minimally burdensome and easily implementable rules for the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and the U.S. Department of Agriculture regulated foods.
Prior to joining FMI, Graber was an associate attorney with Keller and Heckman, where she advised domestic and foreign clients regarding compliance with global food additive and food packaging regulations. She also assisted clients with submissions to FDA, addressing food-contact substances and processes used in post-consumer recycled plastics. Prior to attending law school, Graber spent four years in the consumer packaging industry.
As the food industry association, FMI works with and on behalf of the entire industry to advance a safer, healthier and more efficient consumer food supply chain. FMI brings a range of members across the value chain – from retailers that sell to consumers, to producers that supply food and other products, as well as the wide variety of companies providing critical services – to amplify the collective work of the industry.
