Sales of British salmon surge as UK food exports hit record high



Sales of British salmon helped the UK to export a record value of food and drink in the first half of the year, according to industry figures.

 
Exports of the fish jumped more than 53% by value to £408m, the Food and Drink Federation (FDF) said.


UK food and drink exports rose 8.5% to £10.2bn, helped by the fall in the pound after last year's Brexit vote.


But the FDF warned that without a favourable Brexit trade deal, British exports could become less competitive.
