2021 certainly started with a bang; we are seeing a significant boost in appetite for advice right across our FMCG client base, including a lot of M&A activity, and we are excited to see how the year ahead unfolds.

In the May 2021 edition of FMCG Express, editor Hazel McDwyer and the Gadens team provide some key industry insights, including a rundown of the new .au Domain Administration Rules; significant changes foreshadowed for the Designs Act; an overview of claims made regarding therapeutic goods during the pandemic; and a deep-dive into the Fonterra v Bega decision.

On the regulatory front, we look at the ACCC and where it will be focusing this year and ASIC’s crackdown on illegal phoenix activity.

If you would like to discuss any queries regarding this edition or if you have any other feedback, please do get in touch with our teams.
