The food and beverage manufacturing sector is the largest manufacturing sector in the UK. In terms of economic contribution, it accounts for 17% of all UK manufacturing GVA. As of 2018, 68% of the workforce is considered low or semi-skilled. One of the Food and Beverage sector’s defining characteristics is its national presence. It spans the length and breadth of the United Kingdom in terms of both employment and businesses. As a GLAA licenced supplier our focus is working with food and beverage manufacturers based in the South East where we have built long standing relationships with a number of companies each with unique requirements ranging from production line operatives to operations directors.
