Food & Drink

The food and drink industry is hugely important to the UK. It generates an annual turnover of £104 billion, with an export market worth more than £23bn. The figures for Scotland are even more impressive. The sector has boomed in the last decade and is now the country’s largest manufacturing sector, employing in the region of 45,000 people.

However, it is also very closely linked to the EU. So what will happen to the sector in a no-deal Brexit scenario?

In a recent interview with the Herald, Grant Strachan provides clarity on the post-Brexit future of the UK’s food and drink sector.
