Lexfood is a team of lawyers and consultants which offers solutions, consultancy and assistance to companies operating in the food and beverage segment. We deal with all possible legal issues connected with food legislation in Italy, Europe and abroad, as well as relations with the Public Authorities, and the advertising and marketing of food and beverage products.
Our approach is business and marketing oriented, with the aim of avoiding litigation, sanctions or other restrictive measures and of achieving a positive impact on consumers. And not only that: we use our legal competence and creativity to offer you state-of-the-art and avant-garde solutions, seeking to give your company a competitive advantage.
