Food & Drink

The food sector is a fast moving and exciting place to be. We work alongside you from farm to fork and all the stages in between. We work with clients at all stages of the food cycle including producers, wholesalers, distributors and retailers.

Food is legally any substance or product, whether processed, partially processed or unprocessed, intended to be or reasonably expected to be ingested by humans - so a pretty wide definition.

We help you in a proactive way by providing advice before you make, label, supply, sell or advertise your products and also in a reactive way when things don't quite go to plan such as when a product recall is needed or you need a hand with a notice received from the local EHO.

We have listed our key areas below; however please do ask if your query is not listed as we have come across most things from mice infestations to dodgy claims on packaging.


  • Food safety
  • Selling, buying or re-structuring a business
  • Workforce Issues
  • Product Recalls
  • Disputes
  • Leasing, selling or buying premises
  • AgriTech
  • Supply Chain Contracts
  • Imports and exports
  • Insolvent Suppliers
  • Labelling
  • Waste Management
  • Business Regulation
