Welcome to the Winter edition of our Food & Drink newsletter, which comes to you early in what we hope is a more politically and economically certain year than those of the recent past. This uncertainty has hit investment, and arguably, productivity and long-term growth and we very much look forward to the steadying of the ship – although there may be some choppy waters in the interim!
The Conservative manifesto contained a promise to conduct a national food strategy and we will wait with interest to see what that will contain and we will look at this in detail at a later date.
The general election campaign raised many questions of great relevance to food and drink businesses. We have looked at a number of these in previous editions and we make no apologies that we continue in this, our latest offering.
