What’s in Store for Food Retail?

Event Date: 22 June 2016

We held a food industry seminar in our offices on Barrow Street, Dublin 4 on Wednesday, 22 June from 7.30am to 9.00am.

As many food manufacturers look to take advantage of the recent growth in the food retail sector, it's important to be up to speed on new regulations and developments which might impact your business. At this seminar our speakers will discuss the new Grocery Goods Regulations, which came into force on 30 April 2016 and are unprecedented in the Irish grocery sector. 

We also reviewed the key issues for food companies to consider in the area of promotions and advertising.

Topics and speakers:

Grocery Goods Regulations: What does this mean for suppliers? 
Peter Bolger, Partner, Mason Hayes & Curran 

Grocery Regulations: The UK experience 
Craig Hodgson, Partner and Head of Food & Beverage, Mills & Reeve 

Promotions & Advertising: Pitfalls and opportunities 
Wendy Hederman, Partner, Mason Hayes & Curran 

This event was aimed at representatives of companies supplying or interested in supplying grocery outlets. If you would like to receive any information on topics discussed, email
