Food and Drink

Managing uncertainty

There are many pressures bearing down on food and drink manufacturers within the UK. From supermarket pricing pressures, fluctuations in raw material prices and debates about the reformulation of food to be healthier, to the challenge of finding skilled people to maintain the workforce as more employees retire in the next ten years. But the UK’s food and drink industry has tremendous opportunities and is known for its new product innovation by companies of all sizes. Companies can grow quickly and the industry is a vibrant source of mergers and acquisitions. It is the largest manufacturing sector in the UK.
