Food, Beverage & Agribusiness
As the global population continues to grow, McMillan LLP helps food, beverage and agriculture leaders navigate complex regulations and build reputational strength.
Food, Beverage & Agribusiness
The food, beverage and agribusiness industries are vital and rapidly growing components of the Canadian and global economies. They are also increasing in complexity as a result of new product innovation, brand proliferation, greater consumer interest in nutritional and health issues, more stringent regulation, new technologies being integrated into product development and distribution processes, and stronger commitments to sustainability and biodiversity. McMillan’s agricultural, food and beverage industry lawyers equip their clients to remain competitive and successful at every stage of the game. McMillan’s food and beverage lawyers have acted for some of the world’s largest and leading food and beverage industry manufacturers, importers, distributors and retailers in product creation and liability litigation. Known among law firms for our deep domain expertise across food, beverage and agriculture and 14 other industries that define the economy, as well as our commitment to client service excellence, our lawyers are well-equipped to help any consumer-packaged goods or agriculture leader continue their path towards success.
McMillan’s food and beverage lawyers specialize in negotiating and implementing mergers, acquisitions, joint ventures and strategic alliances, including listing agreements with major retailers and co-packing agreements. We also provide representation in litigation and other dispute resolution processes on a wide range of issues, including supply chain, franchising and distribution matters, corporate and commercial disputes, tax issues, and product liability and recall. McMillan has helped some of the largest food and beverage industry players successfully navigate legal situations that would have otherwise had a severe impact on their brand.
Agribusiness Strategies and Legal Structure
With the world population growing by 81 million people per year and Canada’s abundant natural resources, our country is well-positioned to maximize global agribusiness opportunities. McMillan offers comprehensive legal advice on both contentious and non-contentious aspects of commercial matters to clients in the agricultural sector. We help clients overcome obstacles they may face, including navigating the unique regulatory landscape in these sectors. We have extensive experience working with the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA), Health Canada, Canada’s Competition Bureau and other agencies.
McMillan LLP is proud to support people who rely on the land for their vocation while serving the needs of innovators who seek to grow agriculture at a faster rate through technology. With the assistance of our partnering public policy firm, McMillan Vantage Policy Group, our agriculture lawyers can better advise clients on how to navigate complex industry laws and regulations. In addition to negotiating mergers, acquisitions, joint ventures and strategic alliances, we assist with all types of regulatory compliance and with the transportation, shipping, carriage and logistics of bulk agricultural and agri-food products – to anywhere in the world.
