Royal reception for Roythornes
Royal reception for Roythornes

Specialist food industry lawyers from a leading regional law firm were treated to a royal reception last week.

Representatives from Roythornes Solicitors, one of Peterborough’s legal heavyweights, met the Princess Royal as part of their sponsorship of the City Food Lecture.  This prestigious event takes place annually at the Guildhall in London and is one of the key dates in the food sector calendar.  It attracts over 700 food industry leaders who attend to hear a talk on key issues, given this year by Dave Lewis, Chief Executive Officer of Tesco who covered supplier relationships and sustainability.

Each year the Princess Royal, who has close connections with the Worshipful Companies who organise the Lecture, closes the evening with a summary of the points raised before guests mingle during a networking buffet supper.

Speaking about the event, head of Roythornes Food team Peter Cusick said:

“The City Food Lecture is a major, national event and our sponsorship of it is an indication of our commitment to the sector.  It gives us an opportunity to talk to the decision-makers and let them know how totally dedicated we are to the industry and that we have the expertise to go with it.  Meeting the Princess Royal is an added bonus and something all of our guests remark on as one of the highlights of the evening.”
