Food, Drink & Agriculture

Almost 20 per cent of the UK’s manufacturing workforce is employed in the food, drink and tobacco sector, making it the nation’s largest manufacturing sector.

At Unite Legal Services, we represent thousands of members in this sector who work in industries ranging from manufacturing to retail, catering, hospitality, betting shops and public houses.

We know that you often have to use dangerous machinery, sharp tools or carry heavy objects in your work. It is your employer’s duty to provide you with a safe working environment and ensure that you are given the necessary training and equipment needed to carry out your role.

But accidents do happen, and our extensive knowledge of the food, drink and tobacco sector means you will receive expert legal support if you suffer a work-based injury or have been mistreated at work.
