Fizzing up: Growing demand and exports are expected to support future expansion

Operators in the Food and Beverage Processing Machinery Manufacturing industry produce machinery for non-domestic food and drink processing. Key products include cooking and drying machinery, cutting machinery and liquid processing machinery. The industry has faced challenging conditions over the past five years, as intensifying import competition has eroded the share of domestic demand satisfied by UK businesses, but exports have trended upwards over the period, aided by the weak value of the pound since 2016.
