Within the UK, the catering and food processing industries form a key backbone to almost every branch of our society. Without either of these market sectors there would be no food produced for the nation and no assistance during events, no staff at businesses such as hotels and restaurants with nearly 4million people being employed within the food and drink sector alone.

In 2014 the UK consumer market spent a combined total of £198billion on all food, drink and catering related products. This vast amount of spending has reinforced the necessity for top quality equipment to be available for all businesses – such as the options available from our clientele. Export also adds an extra dimension to food production industry with £18billion worth of food and drink being exported to over 200 countries around the world including the Republic of Ireland, the USA, France, Germany and Holland.

The UK’s ability to produce food and drink is vast, which is in no doubt down to availability of high quality equipment that can be purchased both brand new and via auction.

From data gathered in 2014 there are two staggering facts which stand out with regards to food production:
  • We produced over 11.5billion eggs – which is enough to give every man, woman and child in the UK 177 eggs.....EACH!
  • During the same period we also produced over 14billion litres of milk for the catering, diary and general consumption markets, which is enough to completely fill the Boeing factory in the United States, The O2 arena in London (formerly the Millennium Dome) 4 times or Halls 1-4 at the NEC arena in Birmingham – 13 times!
