FWD expands support for supplier members

The Federation of Wholesale Distributors (FWD) has expanded the support it provides for its members with a Food and Drink Suppliers Forum

The Forum will bring together corporate and public affairs leads from supplier members, to address shared challenges affecting the industry and identify opportunities for alignment.

The first session took place on 20 February, identifying priority policy areas and collaborative working. From the discussion, the areas of focus include:

Packaging: EPR and DRS – clarification on timeframe and fee structure

Brexit: Windsor Framework – labelling requirements


Net Zero: Scope 3 emissions

Labour Party engagement

Following the meeting, FWD will be arranging a roundtable with Shadow Food Minister, Daniel Zeichner MP, to discuss the key challenges impacting the food and drink sector.
