A Mock Trial – A sentencing in a Food Allergy Case.


We are pleased to announce our second innovative event, in collaboration with Blake Morgan LLP that will  explore the legal responsibilities of catering to the customers with food allergies and intolerances, and the consequences of getting it wrong!

This event, presented by Food Allergy Aware & Blake Morgan, will explore a fictional scenario of produce being served that has had the allergens incorrectly labelled. The legal responsibilities of each entity involved in the supply chain of food will be examined as well as the concept of due diligence within the industry and product recall.

Everyone involved in a food business has a legal responsibility to ensure that the products they supply are correctly described and safe to consume. The costs of getting it wrong are high. Failure to control risks in food safety can result in a criminal prosecution – regardless of whether any harm has been caused or not.


Join us in this Mock Trial and you, the delegates, will assist the Judge in conducting the sentencing exercise and applying guidelines for sentencing that came into force in February 2016. Since being introduced these guidelines have resulted in a significant increase in penalties for offenders.
