This week has seen the publication of the UK food and drink export statistics for 2020 by the Food & Drink Federation.
Data shows UK food and drink exports in 2020 fell by 9.7% compared to 2019. The Covid pandemic and the UK's exit from the EU have clearly had a major impact.
Exports to both EU and non-EU markets fell by 8.0%, and 12.1% respectively. Most of the top 10 products exported by the UK also fell due to the pandemic. This includes a decline in volume of the UK’s top three products: whisky (-13.7%), chocolate (-2.3%) and cheese (-7.5%).
