Food and Drink Industry Climate

17 Nov 2017

The impact of uncertainty in the economy as the Brexit negotiations continue has apparently not had a major effect on the food and drink sector.

Investment by food and drink manufacturers appears to be continuing at a reasonably strong level as the discussions regarding the future relationship with Europe progress.

Enquiries both for early stage discussions around capital investments and also for projects that have secured investment are remaining at a good level as 2017 reaches an end.

The proportion of investment that will take place on existing food and drink production sites remains at a high level as producers continue to focus on increased capacity and output within their existing estate.
