Comprehensive legal advice and support for all stages of the supply chain

Food & Drink

Food and drink industries are vital to Scotland’s economy. Exporting to more than 200 countries, the food and drink manufacturing sector accounts for around 45% of Scotland’s full supply chain turnover and the number of people it employs.

Blessed with a fantastic larder of some of the best natural produce in the world, the north-east has a longstanding reputation for producing quality products with a flair for innovation – achieving high growth targets in a challenging environment.

Stronachs plays a vital role in supporting the businesses of farmers, producers and processors, distillers and brewers, of all scales – helping them adapt to change and realise opportunities on a regional, national and global scale.

Our rural and agriculture, banking and finance, corporate, employment and commercial property teams work with a wide range of clients operating within the sector including manufacturers serving national supermarkets, local producers and auction marts, associated supply chain and logistics providers.  

We also work closely with food and drink clients in support of their work to meet changes in the law and the requirements of regulatory bodies including the Food Standards Agency, Scottish Environment Protection Agency and local authority environmental health teams.

Whether a farmer, distiller, processor, manufacturer or retailer, we can help with all aspects of your day-to-day business.
