Our team Food & Agri can help you further

A sector in motion
The Netherlands is among the frontrunners in the food and agriculture sector and a global leader in knowledge and innovation. This fast-developing, innovative sector is constantly in motion. It is subject to very specific laws and regulations and to close scrutiny by the public and the media due to its major impact on health and the environment, for example. The sector’s rapid growth has made it one of the most regulated sectors in the Netherlands. As an entrepreneur in the food and agriculture sector, you have to deal with all of these laws and regulations on a daily basis. That means you need an attorney who not only stays completely and continuously up to date on all relevant developments, but one who can translate them into clear and pragmatic legal advice. The attorneys in our Food & Agri group, all of whom meet these requirements and have extensive litigation experience, can handle and litigate all food and agriculture-related issues on your behalf.
