During our 2nd Annual Food & Beverage Industry Forum in September 2013, the difficulties surrounding doing business in California were recurring themes in the panel discussion. The conversation prompted this issue’s topic where we will be discussing the high tax climate in California. Food and beverage owners and executives are looking for guidance on how to address these taxing issues.

In this issue of Food Digest, Akash Sehgal, Director of State and Local Tax at GHJ, will shed light on the tax implications for California food and beverage companies.
