Food and Cosmetics
Our team regularly advises clients developing biotech products in areas including biotechnology derived proteins (such as insulin), immunologicals (such as vaccines and allergens), blood or plasma derived products, and engineered tissues.
Our Life Sciences team has experience of advising many cosmetic and food companies, including Cargill, LVMH Perfumes and Cosmetics, Primark, United Biscuits, McDonalds, Heineken, Kraft Foods Inc, Nestlé, British Sugar and Heinz, among others. We have advised on issues including health claims, composition and labelling requirements, and various marketing issues. Our lawyers know the issues the industry faces and understand how to deal with them. The team has the added benefit of being fully integrated into Allen & Overy’s broader Life Sciences team and benefits from insights and expertise from our dedicated Life Sciences regulatory group.
