Food and Drink
If you’re lucky enough to live in the South West, you’ll know the region’s reputation for exceptional food and drink is well deserved. It’s tasty stuff for the economy too – 37,000 employees across 3,000 companies generating £5bn annual turnover in Devon and Cornwall alone.
Because it’s such an important industry to the region, we have a rapidly evolving and specialist food and drink team dedicated solely to representing local producers – those just starting out, those who are market leaders, and those trying to crack the top tier.
From new start-ups to employment issues, contract drafting to debt recovery and succession planning, we aim to be there for your business every day, whatever challenges it’s facing. You’ll be given a single point of contact at Stephens Scown, guaranteeing you a warm and sympathetic approach from a trusted source who already knows your industry inside out. Make one call and we’ll do the rest.
It’s this thoughtful approach which has won us major local clients including St Austell Brewery, Westaway Sausages and Pipers Farm. But we don’t just value our larger clients. We represent a large number of smaller businesses in the region who work in the food and drink sector and we pride ourselves on understanding their vision for the future and addressing their legal needs.
In fact, we’re so passionate about local food and drink that we’ve even launched an iPhone app championing more than 800 local producers. You can find it at www.foodfindersw.co.uk
Over the last few years we've been determined to develop our quality and professionalism while investing in growth. Stephens Scown have been valuable advisers and it's reassuring to know good advice is only ever a phone call away
