Ian Wright CBE, Director General at the Food and Drink Federation, the voice of
the UK’s largest manufacturing sectore – food and drink, responds to the vote
to
leave in the UK’s EU Referendum. Ian said:


“In March we released the results of a poll of our members which showed 70%
support for Britain to remain in the EU. It’s inevitable in light of those
results that the majority of FDF members will regard this as a disappointing
result
for the food and drink industry.

“Now FDF will work on behalf of our members and all those across our industry to
find a way through this very challenging period that we face. We’ll focus on
working with the Government to understand what this means for trading, market
access and regulation to secure the best outcome for British food and drink
manufacturing business and their customers.”
