Food for Thought Winter 18-19
In this edition we are focusing on some topical issues and providing you with technical guidance, helping you protect both the financial and reputational interests of your business (or for your clients).
With recent tragedies and a media focus connected to food allergens/contamination, Ivor Long (Head of Technical) and Vickie Forsyth (Litigation Specialist) have shared their specialist knowledge with an article on food contamination in the grocery supply chain and a campylobacter claim related case study.
Also Claire Rowlands takes a look at a cause type in focus. With manual handling claims being both common and costly to the sector, Claire gives some practical advice to enhance claims defensibility. And as the home delivery sub-sector continues to grow, Ryan Beeley (Pre-Litigation Specialist/Solicitor) assesses the potential impact on claims. All this before I give you an update on our recent sector activity and plans for 2019!
What better way to cure those winter blues than taking in this small but informative dose of sector insight.
Although perhaps avoid reading Ivor and Vickie’s articles whilst eating!
