Dates for your diary
You will be able to live chat with buyers from supermarkets and multiples across the globe via your virtual stand at the Great British Food Fair; here are some dates to keep in mind...
Spain Meet the Buyer - TBC
Spain is a large market and has high growth potential for the food and drink sector, which grew 18% in 2016. Spanish people are very aware of British consumer goods, so food and drink products such as chocolate, beer, cheese and wine are in high demand. Spain was the 6th highest growing market for food and drink imports in 2016 with an estimated value of £985.8 million.
Nordic Meet the Buyer - TBC
The Nordic region poses huge potential in the food and drink sector due to the high income levels and luxury lifestyle of the people of Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Iceland and Finland. Nordic countries are stable, democratic, law-abiding and rational, providing positive environments for conducting business, and Scandinavians adore British produce. The combined value for Danish and Swedish food and drink imports in 2016 was valued at £555.9 million.
India Meet the Buyer - TBC
India is one of the fastest growing economies in the world, and in 2014
the UK exported £6.25 billion worth of goods and £2.24 billion worth of
services to the Indian market. Whilst the market may present boundaries and
complications, the opportunities are lucrative with huge potential in the food
and drink sector.
USA Meet the Buyer - TBC
The United States is the world’s largest market and the UK’s top export
destination outside of the EU. The market has grown consistently by 1.8%
or more since 2011, and the food and drink sector is full of opportunity for
British businesses. Last year the total value of food and drink exports from
the UK into the US increased by 13% to £2.15 billion.
