Food and drink is the UK’s largest manufacturing industry – exporting significantly more to the EU than it does further afield. It also relies heavily on an EU-workforce. While Brexit presents the sector with some complex challenges ahead - experts say it could also open up the UK to untapped export markets, as well as offer more opportunities for British food and drink within the UK.
