Food Labeling and Regulatory Compliance

As a participant in the U.S. food and agricultural industries you confront a highly complex regulatory landscape, with 15 federal agencies collectively administering over 30 laws related to food safety. Having access to a trusted legal advisor is key to successfully navigating this regulatory patchwork. At Stoel Rives, we have worked with national and regional food retailers, suppliers and processors on regulatory, compliance and product liability issues for decades. If you want the assurance that comes with working with connected, knowledgeable and client-focused lawyers, then you need look no further.

Client-Focused Legal Solutions

Why Stoel Rives? We don't take a cookie-cutter approach to working with our clients. Rather, we focus on demonstrating value by formulating legal solutions tailored to our clients' individual business objectives. For our food and agricultural clients, we believe value is best delivered by a comprehensive approach. Our food labeling and regulatory services include:

  • Product packaging and labeling review for food, dietary supplements, functional foods and beverages, and other consumer products
  • Various U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) requirements and agency inquiries, including food-borne illnesses, recalls, and food processing compliance
  • Obligations under various other federal and state laws and regulations
  • Organics and other certification program
Our food safety attorneys also routinely coordinate with our intellectual property attorneys to counsel clients on issues relating to branding, product labeling and packaging, e-commerce and marketing law, and long-term IP strategies that help secure and protect market position and competitive advantages in the United States and abroad.

Connected and Knowledgeable

Keeping our clients abreast of developments in food and nutrition law is a key focus. Through our Food Liability Law Blog, our food law client alerts, and individual attorney Twitter feeds, we now regularly share our knowledge of news that impacts our clients' business within minutes of official announcement.
