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.

SURVEY - How Ready are you for Brexit?

As we rapidly approach the end of the transition period, especially with so much remaining uncertain, we would welcome your views and insights to help us brief industry partners and key government departments. All information will be shared anonymously unless you give us your permission to share your company details.
