More than 200 senior industry figures have signed a petition calling for the work of Food From Britain to continue.
Defra revealed earlier this year it was pulling funding for FFB, and FFB said it would disband its UK operations in March next year when funding runs out.
The petition, created by the managing directors of all FFB international offices, calls for support for FFB to continue through the existing international network.
“Seeing the need and demand of the British food and drink industry in local in-market support, the nine independently-owned international offices have pledged to continue their service,” the petition states.
The petition can be found here.
