As an industry led and not-for-profit organisation, The Food and Drink Forum Limited applies an altruistic approach to business and technical support.

Our practical hands-on-support enables food businesses to grow and succeed within highly complex supply-chains and challenging regulations. Our Technical and Innovation Services provide businesses with the confidence to deal with food regulations and standards as well as assisting them with product innovation and reformulation to create new market opportunities. Our Membership Services bring together learning and collaboration as well as creating business development prospects.

The Forum provides Strategic Support to the Industry through its network of the Government Departments, funding agencies, Local Enterprise Partnerships, academia, research bodies and national food organisations. It leverages public funding on behalf of the industry to develop infrastructure, such as Food Grade Premises, as well as by acting as a conduit for direct business support and Grant Funding.
