MEMBERSHIP OVERVIEW

The Engine Room of the industry - the Membership Programme is a platform for individuals and organisations working directly in the food industry, from the front line to the CEO's office, across each sector of the industry from 'farm to fork' to engage with the industry body that looks after their commercial interests, feeds them with insight, provides an array of resources, and a 'dial pad' of industry connections.

PARTNERSHIP OVERVIEW

Our upper level of membership – the Partnership Programme is a platform for commercial suppliers to build and strengthen relationships with key industry stakeholders, corporate decision makers and fledgling start-ups right across the UK Food Industry from farm to fork. Through their participation in various UK Food Council work groups, Partners gain a unique insight into the industry priorities.

NEW FOR 2022
'membership lite'

Membership Lite has been created for those businesses who serve other industries in addition to the food industry and therefore require only a 'helicopter view' of the current issues, news, trends, and developments in the UK food industry.

Membership Lite is a subscription based service, open to all operators and suppliers across the food industry.
