The food and drink industry is the UK’s largest manufacturing sector, and forms part of a diverse and complex supply chain. The sector directly employ over 440,000 people across every region and nation of the UK. Employment in the sector has grown by 19% over the last decade.
Engineering in the Food & Beverage sector is highly complex, with extra consideration needed for food grade processing, process safety, ATEX as well as normal engineering and project management principles. Although cottage industry production is on the rise, major global blue chips continue to dominate the CAPEX and Opex spending tables.
