Buying British in 2017

Small British firms benefit from resurgence in local authentic heritage products

Our Buying British in 2017 report shows a rise in small businesses creating British products – driven by consumer demand. The report highlights our latest membership data which shows a significant increase in smaller organisations joining compared to previous years. These start-ups are thriving because consumers increasingly want their food, drink and clothing to demonstrate local heritage and have fewer air miles.
