Food Safety

Members regularly act for businesses, major retailers and individuals in cases that have involved issues of Food Safety.

These can involve clients being prosecuted for offences concerning the preparation, sales, production, retailing, import, export and packaging for food products. In addition we have extensive experience of acting for enforcement agencies throughout the country including the Food Standards Agency.

Our members are able to offer their expertise in food poisoning cases and contractual problems as well as on regulatory issues regarding food products and public health concerns such as Foot and Mouth Disease.  Members are also able to offer advice on product recalls and regulatory interventions.

Given the increasing regulation of food matters it is important that clients obtain expert advice on these issues and that is what the Team offers to our clients.
