Public affairs Activities

FDF's Public Affairs Team champions UK food and drink producers to politicians, policymakers and stakeholders in the UK and Brussels.

We deliver a range of activity to communicate the opportunities and challenges facing the UK’s largest manufacturing sector.

We co-ordinate and develop relationships with MPs, Peers and MEPs, briefing them on the issues that matter to our industry. We also host events throughout the year, the highlight being FDF’s Annual Parliamentary Reception.

We regularly provide evidence to Select Committees and serve as the Secretariat to the APPG on Food and Drink Manufacturing.

Food and Drink Manufacturing APPG

The Food and Drink Manufacturing All-Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) is a cross-party group of Parliamentarians chaired by John Stevenson MP. The group raises awareness of the issues facing food and drink manufacturers in Parliament.

FDF provides the Secretariat to the APPG and runs an active programme.
