The UK’s food and drink exports increased by 5% to £23.8bn in 2019. The UK’s organic produce is exported widely around the world, and we work closely with industry to support the sector.
On 22 June, in partnership with the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, the Department for International Trade launched a Bounce Back Plan to support the food, drink and agriculture industries. The package offers initiatives to support the organic industry including export masterclasses and virtual meet the buyer events. This bespoke package will further boost our trade efforts and complement the new opportunities presented by free trade agreements such as that with Japan.
