Food (2014 Reissue)
Dr. Donald Buckingham, LL.B., Dip. Int. Law, LL.D.

The law which regulates food is drawn together from several "black letter" areas of private law (including the law of contracts, torts, and property) and public law (including criminal law, regulatory law, administrative law and constitutional law). Food safety and food quality concerns now link the farmer and the chef. Producers, consumers and their advisers need to understand the private law that assigns liability when things go wrong. They also need to understand the public law that encourages the industry to produce safe food by sustainable agricultural methods and sell them in fair and open national and international marketplaces. Halsbury's Food Law title examines the law relating to the preparation, sale and marketing of edible substances in Canada. Topics covered include:
  • The regulation of food safety and quality
  • Food labeling
  • Relevant issues in tort and contract
  • Intellectual property concerns
