Food & Agriculture Quarterly June 2020 - Page 2

editor’s note Welcome back to our quarterly publication devoted to the Food and Agriculture industries. Let me begin with what is most important: on behalf of everyone at Porter Wright, we hope that you and your families are healthy and safe and continue to be so during these unprecedented times. We have a fairly packed edition for you. To start off, Arlene Boruchowitz summarizes some of the happenings on Capitol Hill and the White House as they relate to antitrust and the food industry. Next up, Jack Meadows breaks down the complex rules related to the forgiveness of PPP loans. Jason Dubner relates what happened with Dean Foods’ bankruptcy and their deal with Dairy Farmers of America, while Allen Carter updates us on the status of the many antitrust cases that are going on involving food and agriculture. We hope you enjoy this edition and please let us know if there are any topics you would like us to address in the future. And once again, we hope you and your loved ones remain healthy and safe.
