Through attending a number of food trade shows in recent months, as well as seeing an increase in the export agendas with our clients, I am not surprised to see an increase in food exporting. Brexit is certainly not an issue and in my opinion there will always be a demand for British brands, tastes and flavours. There is certainly plenty of whiskey drank in Japan for example!

Whiskey is still our biggest export, rising 3.5% to £895.9m. Salmon and chocolate also saw an increase. 

Although the figures are not stated in this article I would not be surprised to see an increase in Gin exports, which is certainly on trend at the moment.

What will be the next successful new export?....
