The UK accounts for a small proportion – recently around
2%– of food and animal feed imports from all countries. It is not
one of the most important countries of origin in any of the major
product groups. However, based on the high levels of imports of
wine and spirits, beverages account for an above-average 6% of
goods imported from the United Kingdom.
Generally speaking,UK– imports are unlikely to exert pressure – via the exchange rate
effect – on food products manufactured in, or imported into Ger-
many as a result of Brexit.
