I waver from one day believing that the whole world is collapsing to being quite optimistic. I guess most of us are from the food industry, so it would be interesting to gauge how we are doing during this worldwide recession. Please vote in the poll and comment as you see fit.

I read more in the press about how my company is doing rather than being told!

Seriously I'd be naive if I didn't think we were a takeover opportunity for someone but I don't see my industry going abroad which is probably the biggest risk in food (particularly ambient) and certainly happened when I was in confectionery.

Their is a risk with going abroad, especially with fast moving foods. The UK food industry demands short runs, quick turnover, high quality, technical support and more (cheap prices). That gives UK companies who can deliver this some strength against cheaper overseas suppliers.

In times like these though everyone is looking at the scales very carefully.
