Welcome to Next Month’s News, the latest edition in Food Manufacture Group’s new podcast series predicting what topics will dominate our headlines over the next four weeks.

Hogging the headlines over the next month is likely to be the continuing fallout from the UK’s historic decision to quit the EU.

Prime Minister Theresa May – who is chairing a cabinet meeting at Chequers today (August 31) to plan the UK’s negotiating stance on quitting the EU – has insisted that “Brexit will mean Brexit”.

But what will that mean for food and drink manufacturers who depend on access to the EU’s 500M consumers? Then, there is the future of the 100,000-plus EU nationals working in the UK food and drink sector to consider.

Other topics likely to dominate our headlines include: likely rises in production costs and the first moves of the new Retail Grocery Advisory Board  to tackle the retail crisis.

The new board includes food and drink manufacturers Unilever, Nestlé and Coca-Cola.

Food safety topics to be addressed at our annual one-day conference on Thursday October 13 were also predicted to feature.

Meanwhile, the top three most popular stories with FoodManufacture.co.uk’s 108,000-plus independently-audited, unique monthly visitors were two food and drink sector entrepreneurs who featured on the hit BBC TV show Dragons’ Den and criticism of the government’s “flawed” obesity strategy.

The next most popular article was our report of an advert for Dr Oetker pizza, which was banned by the Advertising Standards Authority following a complaint from 2 Sisters Food Group.

And here is next month’s news …
  1. What Brexit means for food and drink manufacturers
  2. Coping with rising costs
  3. How the Retail Grocery Advisory Board plans to tackle the retail crisis

And top stories this month were:

  1. Dragons’ Den coconut entrepreneur
  2. Life after the Dragons’ Den investors said: No deal
  3. Childhood obesity strategy
  4. Dr Oetker pizza ad ban after 2 Sisters’ complaint
