About Us

We are a niche food law consultancy specialising in the provision of online CPD training to food law enforcement officers in the UK. Over the last 20 years we have delivered training to thousands of delegates on topics ranging from Imported food Control to the conduct of Criminal Investigations on behalf of the Food Standards Agency, Food Standards Scotland, Defra and through our own programme of events.

These days our training services are delivered exclusively online through subscription to ABC Food Law Online PLUS. 

In addition to training, we provide food label compliance checks for local authorities. 

Please note that as a food law compliance consultancy we do not offer any reserved legal activities as defined in the Legal Services Act 2007 and we are not authorised by the Solicitors Regulation Authority.
