British food and drink exports are up 2% on the same period in 2001, according to latest food and drink export figures released today [Wednesday] by international food and drink export marketing agency Food from Britain. These figures demonstrate at last a more positive outlook for British food and drink exports, with further recovery predicted to continue for the rest of 2002. It is predicted that for the full year, food and drink exports will easily exceed the £8.5bn (US$13.4bn) achieved in 2001.
