The FDF’s members have access to unrivalled policy insight and expertise affecting food and drink manufacturing across the UK. Our core strength is our deep understanding of industry issues, which ensures we are well placed to deliver results for our members.
We are organised into seven expert teams of over 70 people across England, Scotland and Wales to help members navigate the complex and fast evolving policy landscape and keep you abreast of the latest developments wherever you are.
In Wales there are two areas where the agenda has a specific dynamic as they are defined by Welsh government – apprenticeships and fair/social work agenda.
Recycling, deposit return schemes, extended producer responsibility and the drive to the circular economy are pivotal issues that are decided by Welsh government.
FDF Cymru works with member companies to support educational programs in Wales to advocate the benefits of breakfast clubs, promote the benefits of a healthy balanced diet, and to showcase our member's reformulation successes.
We organise seminars, briefings and workshops throughout the year. These are a great way to network with peers across the industry and share ideas and best practices.
We also facilitate events that allow our members to have a close dialogue with senior retailers and other important stakeholders.
