Food & Drink

Food and Drink

We act for many prominent food and drink companies and outlets in the Southwest.  Our experience across a broad range of legal practice areas gives clients in this sector confidence that all of their legal matters are dealt with under one roof.


Our services to the food and drink industry


Over the years, our teams have advised a wide range of clients in the food and drink sector, from all aspects of the supply chain, including;


  • Bars and restaurants
  • Food and drink manufacturers
  • Food processing
  • Food distribution and storage
  • Importers and exporters


Much of the legal advice we provide to the food and drink industry is around regulatory compliance and enforcement.  However, because we are a full-service law firm, we can provide legal guidance on all areas of law affecting the food and drink sector, including;


  • Employment
  • Commercial property
  • Contracts
  • Advertising and marketing
  • Packaging and food labelling
  • Food hygiene laws


If you have received an enforcement notice or are facing an investigation by a local authority or statutory regulator, our experienced solicitors can advise and represent you.  We can also provide an emergency response, should a major incident occur that affects public safety; for example, a food product being contaminated and requiring withdrawal from the market.


Because we understand you are busy running your business, we will also bring any changes in regulations affecting the food and drink industry to your attention.  We will then advise you of any changes required in your organisation to meet compliance.


Nalders Solicitors Employment Protection Scheme


Many of our clients in the food and drink industry belong to our Employment Protection Scheme (EPS).   This is managed by our employment law team.  Members receive many benefits for a fixed annual cost, including;


  • Having all employment contracts, handbooks, policies, and procedures checked to ensure they are up-to-date and the organisation is fully compliant
  • A dedicated telephone helpline to provide employment law advice
  • Insurance to cover defending employment disputes and any awards made against them


We have eight offices, located throughout Cornwall, making it easy for you to come and see us.
