25% of survey complete.

Dear Reader,

Food Manufacture is running its annual survey of readers to gauge their views about the current state of the food and drink manufacturing industry and identify the issues that are causing most concern.

I would be grateful if you would take a few moments to complete the questionnaire. As a small incentive for answering our three-minute survey, all named entries will automatically be entered in a prize draw to win £100 of Amazon vouchers.

We will communicate the name of the lucky winner in the July 2017 issue of Food Manufacture as well as on www.foodmanufacture.co.uk. However, I would like to reassure you of the anonymity of your response. No mention will be made of either you or your company in the published results. We are solely looking for general trends that are of interest to our readership.

Meanwhile, with the food and drink manufacturing sector on the brink of Brexit, we look forward to receiving your answers even more keenly than usual.

Thank you for your assistance

Rick Pendrous
