imagesI am food lawyer in Italy and global advisor on food safety, food labeling and food regulatory issues.

In July 2013 I founded and started my independent consultancy activity.

Through partnerships with technical experts and other international advisors I can offer a multidisciplinary and multi-jurisdiction approach, to timely answer needs of clients in a globalised environment and on 60 countries in the world.

We are proud to work at the intersection between science, law, business and social sciences.

Our activity includes;

– food law consultancy at Italian, EU and international level;

– food recall/withdrawal from the market assistance and crisis management and communication services;

– food import/export into the EU or toward third countries;

– food fraud prevention and mitigation;

– liaison activity with trade associations and EU/Italian authorities on behalf of clients;

– development of internal procedure for the mitigation and prevention of food frauds, of the consumer’s complaints and of product’s non compliance events;

– trainings for food business operators, competent authorities and third countries on the relevant legislation;

– participation as independent consultant in EU and international agencies funded and co-founded projects;

– provision of newsletters and tailor made legal updates services on Italian and European food law;

– participation to conferences and publications regarding food law on Italian and EU reviews (e.g. EFFL – European Food and Feed Law review, EJRR – European Journal of Risk Regulation, Alimenti & Bevande).

From April 2014 to November 2018 I was acting as Vice President Business and Regulatory Affairs EU at Inscatech, a US based company provider of food fraud intelligence, forensically based vulnerability assessments, and validated supply chain mapping.

I teach food law related matters in several Universities, in particular LUISS in Rome, Alma Mater in Bologna and MSU in US.

I am member of the AIDA-IFLA (Italian Food Law Association) and of the AIBADA (Asociación Iberoamericana para el Derecho Alimentario).

I believe that is possible to provide a new and revolutionary legal aid to food companies, a high quality service at fixed costs, based on:

  • quick response;
  • certainty of costs and tariffs;
  • direct access to the professional and, when necessary, physical presence of the professional into the company;
  • optimization of resources and filing systems;
  • continuous updating and improvement;
  • optimization of sources of information;
  • powerful use of IT systems;
  • building and maintaining a strong international network;
  • an open-mind setting and strong openness to social interaction.

    1. Not for now, I’m really sorry. But I’m working on it. I need to migrate all my blog to another platform, which allows multilanguage. It’s planned for the end of 2014. Then the blog will be in English, Italian and Spanish.
      It’s a huge amount of work and my IT technician (a guy named Cesare Varallo ;D ) it’s very busy at the moment!
