FDF's Response to BIS Select Committee Inquiry on Government's Productivity Plan

Back to competitiveness responses index

September 2015

In July 2015, the House of Commons Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS) Select Committee launched an inquiry into the Government's recently published Productivity Plan. The inquiry explores whether the Productivity Plan addresses the main causes of low productivity in the UK and whether it is likely to achieve its desired results.

At the beginning of September, FDF submitted a response which acknowledges the potential for food and drink manufacturing to make an even greater contribution to increasing productivity in the UK, while adding value to the UK food chain. It also sets out our proposals to drive productivity, in light of our industry's track record on upskilling, innovation and export growth.
