The modern consumer is looking for quality and value for money but often makes purchasing decisions based on other criteria – sustainability, animal welfare, production method, ethical trading and religion being a few examples. All these considerations lead to further information and claims jostling for position on pack, whether that is Red Tractor, Kosher, Halal, Organic, Gluten Free, Lion Eggs, Quality Meat Scotland, Marine Stewardship Council or any other claim that may require certification.
Unfair trading practices affect those who trade fairly. How is the truth of these claims governed for the benefit of the consumer and for the producer?
Our first session will explore the use of private law to control such claims and the rise of certified claims and their status.
Our second session will explore what this means in practice for those who wish to make use of the certified claims, the nature of the certification and the
burdens and benefits it brings in practice.
