Food, Beverage & Agri Business E-zine - November 2013
Welcome to the winter edition of our Food, Beverage & Agri-Business ezine.

Welcome to the winter edition of our Food, Beverage & Agri-Business ezine.

In this edition we look at the proposal to regulate the grocery goods sector by means of a statutory code of conduct.  We discuss the Government’s plans to introduce legislation to provide for minimum unit pricing of alcohol and other measures.  We also consider proposals to tax sugar sweetened drinks in an effort to curb the obesity “epidemic”.

We report on a decision of the UK Supreme Court in a prosecution of a company for selling food after its use-by date.

Finally, we review a recent study of the UK Intellectual Property Office on the impact of ‘lookalike’ goods on consumers, retailers and brand owners.  

For further information on any of the issues discussed in this ezine, please call or email any of the ‘Key Contacts’ listed or your usual William Fry contact person.
