Exports of UK food and drink increased to £5.9bn in the third quarter of the year, an increase of 14.7% on the same period last year.

The Food and Drink Federation published its quarterly Exports Snapshot which highlights key UK food and drink export figures for the third quarter of 2017.

During the third quarter, food and drink producers saw further growth, building on the strength of the record-breaking first half results seen earlier this year.

Exports grew to £5.9bn during the period, up 14.7% on Q3 2016. This represents growth of 11% to £16.1bn from January to September 2017 (YTD) against the same period in 2016.

From January to September, Ireland, France and the United States remained the top three destinations for UK food and drink in terms of overall value.

The US remains the UK’s top non-EU market for exports of food and drink, reaching £1.6bn, up 7.7%.
