The partnership community has been developed to host and facilitate opportunities for partners and members to network and engage with each other, and to channel expert opinion and feedback that supports the exchange of ideas and knowledge from which the UK food industry can gain benefit and advantage.
Our Strategic Partners are an integral part of the partnership community. They are selected companies who commit time and resource into a strategic relationship with Food UK and its strategic aims, whilst adding value to the Membership Network through sharing their knowledge, expertise, and experience. They are committed to collaborating with all Members of the Network to develop collective solutions to the key challenges facing the UK food industry.
Our Strategic Partners benefit from exclusive influence and alignment, top-level meaningful discussion and debate and take part in cross-sector ‘Think Tank’ style initiatives, through debate, research, workshops and consultations - working together with network colleagues.
Strategic Partner fees are £485 per month
