UK food exports have recently increased and salmon sales are at a record high with British salmon becoming more popular across the globe. The increase in exports is partly due to the drop in the pound following UK’s vote to leave the EU, however it is also down to UK products being in demand more than ever abroad.
UK food exports increase
According to the Food and Drink Federation (FDF), salmon sales from Britain increased to the value of 53% in the last year to a total of £408m. Whisky, chocolate and beer also remain at the top for exports from the UK, but whisky sales fell by 1% in volume and beer by 2.2%.
South Korea’s boom in craft ales and beers has contributed to the remaining popularity of British beer and ales being exported and the popularity of British salmon in places including France, America, Italy and Switzerland is still increasing.
Although the decrease in the value of the pound has made UK products cheaper for importers abroad, it has meant that the UK’s trade deficit has widened by 16% over the last year.
