Food & Drink

Volatile commodity prices and exchange rates, competitive pressures on pricing, compliance with health and environment-focused legislation, regulation and standards, supply chain complexities and concerns, the importance of provenance and branding... these are just some of the challenges MacRoberts' expert Food & Drink lawyers can help you overcome.

We provide specialist legal support at every stage of the supply chain, from assisting with supply agreements and supply chain liability to advising on packaging and advertising requirements and obligations. Our lawyers have a comprehensive grasp of the ever changing food & drink environment and understand the increasingly complex supply chains which operators and businesses must navigate. 

Given the varied nature of the sector, and the supply chain and cross-sector complexities industry operators face, we work closely with specialist teams across the firm to provide a fully comprehensive legal service. The legal advice and support we provide therefore reflects the needs of the sector, both within the industry itself and when it inevitably interacts with other industries.
