Food and Drink Federation

FDF represents the UK food and drink manufacturing industry, the largest manufacturing sector in the UK.

The Food and Drink Federation (FDF) is the voice of the UK food and drink manufacturing industry. FDF promotes the industry's views and works to build consumer confidence in the food chain as a whole.

We help our manufacturers operate in an appropriately regulated marketplace to maximise their competitiveness. We communicate our industry's values and concerns to a range of audiences in the UK and abroad, including Government, regulators, consumers and the media. We work in partnership with other main players in the food chain to help ensure our food is safe and that consumers can have confidence in it. Our members are food and drink manufacturing companies, large and small, and Trade Associations dealing with specific food and drink sectors.
