Food and Drink Federation publishes January food and drink trade snapshot

23 Mar 2021 12:10 PM | Sandra Sullivan (Administrator)

According to statistics published by the Food & Drink Federation, Exports of UK food and drink fell significantly in January 2021, driven by a fall in sales to the EU of 75.5% compared to January 2020, a drop of nearly £0.75bn.

Impacts of COVID and stockpiling by UK businesses in the EU ahead of the end of the transition period were contributing factors, but much of this is likely due to new non-tariff barriers faced by UK exporters and the collapse of groupage movements which has shut out many SME exporters.
