The U.K. has strong historic and cultural ties to the U.S., which are obvious in consumer trends in retail and foodservice markets. The U.K. presents market opportunities for many U.S. consumer-oriented products, including specialty food products, “healthy” food items, wine, sauces, fruit, nuts and juices. Health and convenience foods are the main driving forces in the U.K. value-added food and beverage market. Consumers in this relatively wealthy country are looking for variety in high quality food products especially those perceived to have health and fitness benefits.

2016 U.S. agricultural exports to the U.K. amounted to just over US$1.9 billion, growth of 7% for the year. In 2016  U.S. exports of consumer oriented food products were US$1.2 billion, an increase of 6% from the previous year, and close to 63% of the agricultural total.
