A record number of countries are now importing first class British food and drink into restaurants, supermarkets and bars across the world. Almost three new global markets opened up each week since 2010.

New figures show the UK government has helped 2,500 food and drink businesses sell their produce abroad in the last 12 months – more firms than ever before - generating £300 million for the UK economy as part of the long-term economic plan.

UK’s Food and Drink industry remains the country’s biggest manufacturing sector. The entire food chain contributes £97 billion a year to our economy and employs one in eight people.

Today’s announcement is the latest step in four years of record food and drink export growth. In 2013 exports of UK food and drink was worth £18.9 billion, an increase of £1.2 billion since 2010.
