Unlocking the
UK market with local F&B experts

Despite being the largest manufacturing sector, the food and beverage market in the UK is considered quite complex, with uncertainties in the political and economic scenario.

In the UK and Ireland, people are adapting their behaviors augmented by learned rituals over the pandemic. Navigating hybrid work, the prospect of inflation, re-socializing, and the re-emergence of sustainable priorities are shaping new consumer values for the years ahead. Trends emerging from such matters are the key drivers to generate new commercial opportunities in terms of innovation and new product development in the UK and Ireland.
