United Kingdom: Exporter Guide

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)

The United Kingdom has strong social and cultural ties to the United States, demonstrated by the similarities in consumer trends in the retail and foodservice markets. The UK presents strong market opportunities for many U.S. consumer-orientated products, including specialty food products, “healthy” food items, wine, sauces, fruit, nuts, and juices. “Health” and convenience foods are the main driving forces in the UK value-added food and beverage market. Consumers in this country are looking for variety in high quality food products, especially those perceived to have health benefits. Over the past 10 months, the UK grocery and foodservice markets have changed dramatically and possibly forever. Grocery retailers have benefited while the foodservice sector has been decimated. Meanwhile, online grocery shopping has gained its biggest market share ever.
