A food and beverages expert witness typically has extensive experience and a background in food science, agricultural science, hospitality, FDA regulations, food and beverage packaging, food processing and/or chemical engineering. A food and beverages expert witness should feel comfortable explaining technology, processes, and procedures to a judge and jury. Food and food service are highly regulated industries, all the way from farming through processing and marketing. Legal matters vary widely in the world of food, and a foodservice or restaurant expert will have a completely different set of skills from a food science or agricultural expert.
Litigation support by a food and beverages expert witness could include an analysis, expert report, expert opinion, depositions, and expert witness testimony in court. In a high-profile case, or litigation involving a significant financial stake, a law firm may request a subject matter expert with prior expert testimony experience.
