At Rosewood Solicitors, we have the expertise to help you or your business if you are facing a possible investigation or prosecution by the local authority and the Food Standards Agency.

Local authorities can inspect premises run by food business operators and if a breach of the laws governing food safety and food hygiene is identified, they can commence an investigation against your business. Depending on the outcome of the investigation, this may result in prosecution. A conviction for an offence can mean substantial fines being imposed by the Courts or, in very serious cases, a custodial sentence.

Whether you are a small company or a large national organisation, we can advise you on a wide range of food safety and food hygiene matters including:

  • Food hygiene investigations/prosecutions
  • Food safety investigations/prosecutions
  • Pest infestations
  • Hygiene Emergency Prohibition Notices/Orders
  • Appeals against food hygiene rating scores
  • Interviews under caution

If you or your business, whether large or small, is notified that it is being investigated or if you are required to attend an interview under caution, then please do not hesitate to contact us for specialist food safety and hygiene advice.
