Sylvia Jay, Director General of the Food and Drink Federation today announced that food and drink manufacturers in the UK will tomorrow join in the European Day of Mourning.

She said:

"UK food and drink manufacturers wish to express their sadness and commiseration for those who lost their lives in Tuesday's horrific attacks on the United States, where many of our members have friends and colleagues.

The Food and Drink Federation fully supports the European day of mourning. FDF will observe three minutes silence tomorrow (Friday) from 11.00 a.m. and I have invited our manufacturers from all over the UK to participate in this observance."
