UK Agri-Food & Drink UKAFD

UKAFD works to develop the international competitiveness of UK companies in the agri-food and drink sector.

UKAFD offers a combination of sector and project management expertise. A small and dynamic team, with a successful track record as one of the top performing teams delivering UKTI support over many years. We have the expertise and experience to assist UK and international agri-food and drink organisations to build sustainable and successful businesses and to benefit from opportunities in new and challenging environments.

International Contacts:
With a large network of contacts around the world, UKAFD currently works with British Embassy Staff and independent international partners, supporting their efforts in generating new business for the UK by promoting international opportunities, and assisting with the organisation and planning of inward missions, events and business visits.

The UKAFD team has vast experience working with international partners, providing us with an understanding of international markets, their cultural differences and the more practical issues when working with international commerce.

Programmes & Events:
Designing programmes for delegates, including logistical arrangements, ensuring they have access to Companies, Universities, Research Organisations and the relevant Government departments. UKAFD works closely with our international contacts to ensure their targets are met and exceeded, and their visits operate with budget. These relationships have been developed over many years working together and consistently providing a high level of service.

Industry Expertise:
UKAFD’s unique selling point lies in its use of, and engagement with, Industry Specialists and ‘Ambassadors’, to provide technical expertise and industry knowledge.

UKAFT benefits from the support of industry in the provision of high level speakers and industry representatives, to support its programme of activities. These ‘Specialists’ cover the full spectrum of the sector – from scientists, food technologists, packaging and processing industry experts. Through this network UKAFD is able to cover all aspects of the sector: the food industry ‘from farm to fork’, traceability, related agri-sciences, the development of novel and non-food crop technologies and sustainable development issues.
