The UK dairy industry will be finding out how to make the most of global demand at a major food and drink conference in London.

Representatives from the UK dairy industry will be finding out how to make the most of global demand for dairy products during a major food and drink conference at the Excel Centre in London.

The UK Dairy Export Forum, which has been organised by the UKTI and DEFRA, will take place at the International Food and Drink (IFE) event, which runs from 17-20 March. It will offer new tactics to current exporters as well as giving would be exporters the confidence, backing and practical help needed to start taking British dairy to overseas markets.

The Government aims to double UK exports to £1 trillion a year by 2020 and get 100,000 more UK companies exporting by 2020. Exports of dairy products contribute £1.2bn to the UK economy every year. They also help towards £18bn worth of food and drink exports per year.

The forum takes place on 19 March and will feature speakers from the dairy industry and Government who will cover the strategic importance of exports and outline what services are available. Delegates will also be given the chance to debate key topics and take part in one-to-one and network meetings.

Lord Green, Trade and Investment Minister said:

Food and drink is the biggest manufacturing sector in the UK and it is also a major export success story.

With global dairy demand increasing and an increasingly efficient UK dairy sector, this is a good time for UK dairy firms large or small to step up their export drive.
