Food & Drink lawyers

Food and drink companies operate in challenging times. Shifts in the grocery market are placing intense pressure on margins, compliance and regulatory burdens are growing, and there is mounting emphasis on supply chain transparency. Meanwhile, public interest in diet and health, animal welfare, and sustainability, as well as complex rules on nutrition and functional food claims ,all form part of a complex landscape that food and drinks companies must navigate in order to run their businesses successfully.

CMS’ Food & Drink Group brings together both specialist food lawyers and sector experts to create a one-stop-shop for issues relating to the food and drink sector.

Our specialist team advises on a full range on matters, from regulatory and compliance (including nutrition and health and food information) to product liability issues, contamination and recall, prosecutions, new product launches, labelling, advertising, marketing and promotions, IP and brand protection, borderline products and product audits, commercial contracts, environmental and health & safety issues, and complex M&A transactions.

We also advise on key issues that arise out of the current market environment such as the implementation of the Food Information Regulations 2015, understanding Packers Rules, implications of the Sugar Tax and compliance with nutrition and health regulations.
