Food and drink is one of the country's strengths as a source of business prosperity and economic growth, a provider of vital local jobs and an environmental asset. As the voice of UK business, the CBI is therefore keen to make sure our food and drink members are represented at the heart of our policy priorities.
The CBI Food Supply Chain Forum exists to ensure we champion the issues that matter most to the sector, as we lobby and speak out in the media and take forward the pillars of our UK Prosperity Agenda.
The Forum brings together regional food and drink industry leaders to help shape the business voice on key issues and challenges for the sector; such as the impact of Covid-19, continued frictionless trade of ingredients and goods post-Brexit, Apprenticeship Levy reform, immigration and shaping an R&D system that fosters innovation.
The Forum is unique. It engages CEOs, CFOs and Directors representing firms from the full farm to fork supply chain – farmers and manufacturers, through to packaging, hospitality and logistics firms.
The next meeting on 11 November will focus on the outcome of the EU negotiations and the ongoing impact of COVID-19 on the Food and Drink sector.
The benefits of attending include:
• Help shape and influence the CBI thinking and support for the sector
• Hear from, and engage with CBI policy colleagues on up-to-date insights around the EU Negotiations and COVID-19
• Engage and share opportunities and challenges with fellow industry peers
This event is open to senior executives from CBI members working in the Food & Drink sector including:
