Food & agriculture

The UK’s food supply chain is vast, it contributes £100 billion to the economy and employs 3.6 million people.

The food supply chain involves 300,000 agricultural enterprises, 7,700 horticultural enterprises and 7,400 food processing businesses operating 9,600 factories. The chain is dominated by the sheer buying power of the UK’s multiple retailers (supermarkets) with over 70% of the UK’s groceries sold through the four biggest multiple retailers.
