Public affairs activities

The FDF champions UK food and drink manufacturing to politicians, policymakers and stakeholders across the UK and in Brussels.

At Westminster, Edinburgh, and Cardiff, we hold regular meetings and events to update politicians on the issues facing the UK's largest manufacturing sector. Read more about our priorities here and our views here.

We regularly provide briefings for debates, evidence to Select Committees and serve as the Secretariat to the All-party Parliamentary Group (APPG) on Food and Drink, chaired by John Stevenson MP.
