On 22 June we launched, with Defra, and the support of the UK wine industry a Food and Drink Bounce Back Package. The package offers export support tailored towards the English Wine industry and includes masterclasses, webinars, virtual meet-the-buyer events and support from UK Export Finance. DIT is in regular contact with the wineries’ Trade Association, WineGB and sits on their Export Committee as we prepare for new opportunities presented by FTAs. Under a UK-Japan?FTA, English wines will continue to benefit from lower tariffs into Japan.
