Food Law - A New Opportunity
Food law is always topical, as evidenced by a number of recent cases, and the proposal to introduce sentencing guidelines is likely to see an increase in fines for food offences which will have a significant impact on food businesses.
Do your clients operate in the food industry, perhaps as manufacturers or producers? Do you work with hotels, restaurants, retailers, caterers or food service providers? Are you able to provide advice on their food law issues and if not, would you like to do so?
Food law is a fast-changing subject and it is not always easy to keep up to date. By attending this virtual classroom seminar, you will learn the basics of food law and how this fascinating, yet often overlooked, area of law can help you provide added value to existing clients and might even help you get some new ones.
