Food & Drink
Gordons’ food and drink lawyers are alive to the challenges currently faced by industry operators; we can help you meet these challenges.
We understand the squeeze on margins, the increasing focus on provenance, traceability and health. Our experience enables us to provide our clients with an added value service, giving them a competitive advantage.
Gordons’ food and drink expertise also stretches beyond acting for suppliers, wholesalers and retailers. We help our clients to acquire complementary businesses, build distribution centres, construct retail premises, develop food processing plants and much more.
We are experts in the Groceries Supply Code of Practice (‘GSCOP’) which was brought in to protect supermarket suppliers and regulate the behaviour of the top 14 grocery retailers, and provide regular training to grocery suppliers.
