Supply Chain Risk Management
A major priority for leading food manufacturers, supply chain disruption can not only lose businesses money, but can also harm their reputation and brand for life. In addition, as food brands get bigger and their supply chain is globalised, this brings a greater risk of vulnerabilities and hazards. We’ll work with you to assess the key risk exposures to your business and implement a risk management plan that keeps those exposures to a minimum.
Brand and Reputational Damage
While standard protection might have been adequate a few years ago, now your brands and reputation can be tarnished at the touch of a button online. That’s why our food and drink clients require a more bespoke level of cover, to protect them from these evolving risks.
Commercial Contracts – An Increasingly Demanding and Complex Area
Our commercial legal services cover all eventualities, from global supply, purchase agreements and outsourcing of facilities, through to marketing and brand licensing. For renowned food and drink retailers, this comes with the territory.
The food and drink sector has experienced an increasing number of product recalls, from European legislation regarding packaging to food safety becoming ever more stringent. We have specialist experience in addressing the threat of product recalls and implementing suitable crisis management plans.
