With more and more consumers taking charge of their food choices, the food and beverage industry is poised for a major shift. Ongoing trends will include a demand for more healthy choices, continued mergers and acquisitions, more recalls due to heightened awareness and an emphasis on R&D. We’ve helped shape and implement nearly every legislative and regulatory initiative affecting the food industry in the past 40 years. That means we have the necessary relationships and understanding of processes at major regulatory agencies to guide you through this transformation.
