The Food & Drink Exporters Association (FDEA) represents UK food and drink companies both to the international buying community and to the UK government.
We are a not for profit trade association dedicated to UK food and drink exporters and our membership is drawn from across the UK food and drink sector.
Run by experienced exporters, membership allows companies to join a network of like-minded food and drink exporters and to benefit from our extensive practical experience and expertise in international business development and our large network of global contacts via our helpdesk. As a UKTI Trade Challenge partner we run UK pavilions at international trade shows and also regularly create and host FDEA Networking, Market Insight and workshop events
Benefits of Membership
FDEA's Management Committee of experienced exporters provides strategic guidance to the Association.
We also work closely with a range of partners, including UK Trade & Investment (UKTI), Food & Drink Federation (FDF) and DEFRA to ensure that the food and drink industry has a strong voice in planning international activities for the sector.
FDEA is a not for profit organisation, a Company Limited by Guarantee.
