Online shopping – we've been doing it for years, but the coronavirus pandemic has shifted consumer behaviours.

The additional demand has accelerated transformation in supply chains, putting strains on retailers' capacity and generating innovative solutions for companies to sell their products online.
Particularly in the food sector, companies are developing new business models, new supply chains and new platforms to meet the demand for online orders. In the rush of getting to the market, legal questions will arise or may be overlooked entirely.
Our Food & Beverage team has compiled some of the biting legal questions around food e-commerce and is advising clients on these issues.
