ALTIUS Expertise
Feeding the planet sustainably…

The world of life sciences and agriculture is big business. Thanks to the growing world population, UN experts predict that this industry will need to increase capacity by 60% to feed everyone on the planet by 2050. If you think about all the issues at hand, like sustainable farming, de-ruralisation, climate change, trade agreements…well, overall farm policy and the issues facing this sector are just mind-boggling.

At ALTIUS, we cultivate the legal experience slightly differently from the rest. Take our Life Sciences and Agrifood industry team. In a nutshell, we aim to be a one-stop-shop when it comes to legal expertise for big and small players in the Belgian and European life sciences and agrifood ecosystems.
