Food and Drink

For businesses operating in the food and drink sector, it is vital that they are compliant with the relevant regulations and legislation.

From issues surrounding transparency, traceability, security of supply and fraud, through to regulation, competition, and environmental concerns, there are a wide variety of sector-specific regulations and practices to be aware of.

Not only this, but changes to international trading relationships as a result of Brexit mean that there are new customs protocols in place. 

Whether you’re just starting up, or you’re thinking about restructuring your food and drink sector business, we can help.

Our skilled and experienced team are experts in food and drink law, so they can offer reliable advice and insights on contractual and regulatory concerns.

We can help you navigate and manage the demands and risks that food and drinks companies face throughout the supply chain.

For growers, manufacturers, retailers, and caterers, effective supply chain management is vital. Our expert team can draft and negotiate contracts and ensure you are operating in accordance with the necessary requirements.

We can also work with you to ensure you’re meeting the latest employment legislation for permanent, temporary, and casual employees.

  • Supply chain contracts

  • Food safety and product recalls
  • Employment law
