Food supply chain

£112 billion

The food supply chain employs almost 4 million people and generates over £112 billion for the economy each year.

Grade 1

East Cambridgeshire has a rich food history, and that’s no wonder, as the fens account for around half of the most productive (“grade 1”) agricultural land in England.  It stands to reason that we have built on this heritage and today can boast an enormously successful Food Supply Chain in the region.

From growers through to processing, packaging and distribution - there’s an abundance of great examples of East Cambs businesses in this sector.
