With talk of Brexit and financial uncertainty in the UK, the news that exports from the UK are at a record high is welcome. Figures released at the end of June by the UK government suggest that the export industry is now worth £620.2 billion, which is up 10%. Smylies deliver delicious food and drink as well as non-groceries to the four corners of the globe, from British favourites such as Cadbury’s and Warbuton’s to globally recognised brands like Ben & Jerry’s and Walker’s Crisps.
The report, which can be found on the Gov.uk website, states that manufactured goods were the main driving force for export with a 10% increase, and service exportation rose by 4.2% (travel and finance etc). This increase in trade has meant that the deficit in the industry has reduced by a whopping £7.7 billion, which, of course, is great news. Doctor Liam Fox, the International Trade Secretary said:
“Demand for high quality British products remained strong from countries outside the EU including China, India and Canada and we are putting companies in position to benefit from growing global opportunities.”
So, what exactly does the team here at Smylies export? Groceries are the most popular items that are imported by overseas retailers and wholesalers, as we offer competitive prices and an amazing array of products from big brands to smaller, independent companies that are breaking into the global market. When you need great British brands delivered straight to your store or warehouse, you can count on Smylies.
