Maintaining high levels of food hygiene has never been more important, as the enforcement of food safety and hygiene is more carefully monitored by local authorities.

Environmental Health Officers and Trading Standards Officers regularly perform inspections of a wide range of companies, so it is important that a business’ premises and procedures meets the strict standards set by the Food Standards Agency

Our experienced team at Mackrell Turner Garrett is able to assist on a wide range of issues relating to Food Hygiene and Environmental Health, including:

  • Attending an interview under caution to ensure your interests are safeguarded
  • Advising on whether a defence is available to you upon receipt of a summons
  • Representing you either for the purposes of mitigation or full trial

We also work closely with other advisers and can also advise businesses on good practice and systems that will assist in providing them with a defence of due diligence should a prosecution be brought in future.

We have experience in a wide range of food law matters and can assist you with your food and environmental safety needs, whatever they may be.
