The UK is renowned globally for its agricultural scientific research and innovation ecosystem. Its centres of excellence (their researchers and facilities) work closely with industry across a range of disciplines to develop and commercialise a wide range of innovative technologies for export.

Breakthroughs in science and technology are helping to radically change the industry. The sector is growing quickly as a result of global challenges and opportunities including:

  • increased affluence
  • development of emerging economies
  • climate change adaption and mitigation
  • developing sustainable use of limited resources of land, water and energy

The sector was estimated to be worth USD 400 billion in 2013, offering huge export opportunities, in particular in emerging markets.

The entire agri-food supply chain, from agriculture to final retail and catering contributed £103 billion to the UK economy, around 7% of Gross Value Added (GVA) in 2014.

Around 13% of the UK’s workforce is involved in the process of getting food from ‘farm to fork’.

How DIT can help

The Department for International Trade (DIT) helps the UK agri-tech sector do more business internationally.

We help UK companies:

  • identify and access export opportunities and sales leads
  • build networks and create business connections
  • overcome challenges of doing business in overseas markets
  • exhibit at major international trade fairs
  • partner internationally in technology innovation

We do this by:

  • leveraging government influence to address trade barriers and accelerate routes to market
  • championing the role of agri-tech in strengthening UK agri-business success in both exports and investment through DIT’s Agri-Tech Organisation
  • offering tailored advice and support to businesses or institutions
  • promoting the industry and UK’s capability in the agri-tech sector overseas through our embassies and High Commissions
  • working with the Agri-tech Leadership Council made up of representatives from government and industry
  • introducing companies to potential partners to enable them to access more challenging markets

We’d like to hear from companies in the agri-tech sector wanting to grow their business overseas.
