Agriculture and Markets Law compliance issues
Frequently animal related businesses, farms and municipalities face issues with the New York State Agriculture and Markets Law and the various rules and regulations of the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA). If you own or manage a business that is a farm, kennel, a private municipal shelter operating under the Agriculture and Markets Law, pet grooming facility or a niche business looking to produce animal feed, nutritional supplements or pet treats there are a multitude of regulations which must be addressed and complied with in terms of state and federal filings as well as having appropriate contractual terms in place with your vendors and distributors.
