Food Law and Regulatory Compliance FMCGs

              Our team assists clients from the conception to the initial launch of a new product and throughout the entire product lifecycle. We also challenge complaints and adverse rulings when clients face a product challenge, whether that be a marketing or (food) standards and labelling issue.

              • Product safety and product liability; 
              • Regulatory compliance with importation and exportation issues;
              • Marketability of products and materials/ingredients (e.g. safety evaluation and ingredient approval);
              • Product registration and CE marking;
              • Product and labelling review;
              • Claims and advertisement assessment;
              • Crisis management (eg product recalls, media and consumer relations strategies);
