What we do

FDEA is the UK’s trade association for the food and drink export community. We help companies grow their sales overseas by providing practical export support, lobbying government on industry issues and connecting UK suppliers to the international buying community.

FDEA membership is a valuable resource to both experienced and new exporters.  The community works together to share knowledge, contacts and advice

FDEA’s networking events, member meet ups, webinars and workshops help build your knowledge and contacts.  FDEA works with its event partner PS8 to help you win business through a programme of UK pavilions at leading international trade shows.

Longing to get back to trade shows? 

The PS8 team are recruiting now for the UK group stands at ANUGA, Cologne ;  FHC Shanghai, Speciality & Fine Food Asia Singapore and PLMA Amsterdam.
