Growing your footprint at home and globally

With demand for UK products growing globally, and the UK recognised for the quality of its products and innovation, we aim to help more businesses to start or expand their overseas trade.

We leverage our international footprint to help you to enter and build sales in new markets. We do this through bespoke research tools and trade missions to countries where there's strong demand for UK products. Our global connectivity also means that we can introduce you to overseas importers, retail and wholesale buyers, as well as help you put the right logistical, financial and compliance structures in place to ensure you succeed.
