Roythornes' food team to sponsor The City Food Lecture

Leading food solicitors, Roythornes, is supporting The City Food Lecture, with an extended three-year sponsorship deal that will run to 2019.

The prestigious annual, invitation-only event, is a fixture in the City of London and international food industry calendars, and is delivered every year by a leading figure in the British food business who is invited to speak about the issues they regard as most important in shaping the way food is produced, distributed, marketed, sold and consumed.

Next year’s lecture will be delivered by Chris Elliott, professor of food safety and founder of the Institute for Global Food Security at Queen’s University Belfast.

Commenting on the sponsorship, Peter Seary, co-head of Roythornes’ food team said: “With inspiring and thought provoking speakers, The City Food Lecture is a must attend event for decision makers in the food industry.

“As a leading law firm, with a specialist food and drink team, we’ve been attending the lecture for several years and so we are proud to develop our relationship further with this three-year sponsorship.”

Taking place at London’s Guildhall on 21 February 2017, the event is organised by seven City of London livery companies whose roots are in the food industry – namely the Worshipful Companies of Bakers, Butchers, Cooks, Farmers, Fishmongers, Fruiterers and Poulters.
