It is the first time that I will sign a consultancy contract for the food and beverage industry. Will this document be suitable?
This is a generic consultancy agreement, and hasn’t been designed with any issues that are specific to this industry in mind. Templates are tools, and always need to be adapted to take account of the particular circumstances in which they are used.
