UK Government is currently negotiating new preferential trade agreements with the Australia, New Zealand and the US. It also plans to begin the process of accession to the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP).

The FDF is committed to ensuring that the food and drink industry’s priorities are at the heart of these negotiations, so that UK producers are able to benefit from improved market access, both as exporters and importers, while also defending the interests of sectors of our industry that have defensive interests.

Our vision is for a future UK trade policy which will drive growth, promote efficient and sustainable food production and stimulate innovation, while providing consumers and shoppers with even greater choice and better value.
