UK food industry remembers Her Majesty The Queen  

The UK meat industry has paid its condolences to the Royal Family following the death of Queen Elizabeth II, which was announced by Buckingham Palace on 8th September. Trade bodies within the sector have commended her dedication to the role.  

According to an announcement by Buckingham Palace, the Queen passed away peacefully aged 96. After her 70 years on the throne, she is the UK’s longest reigning monarch, and her eldest son King Charles III survives her.  

The Food and Drink Federation (FDF) said that it and all those who work across the industry express their “sincerest condolences” to the whole Royal Family. 

In a statement, the Federation said: “Queen Elizabeth dedicated her life to serving our nation, and we owe her a debt of gratitude.” 

National Farmers’ Union (NFU) president Minette Batters said that the Queen’s “deep connection” to the countryside has been “valued enormously” by producers and “has left a remarkable legacy that will continue for generations.” 

NFU Scotland president Martin Kennedy said that Scotland fondly remembers the Queen’s “long-standing enthusiasm and support for farming, rural life, and the countryside” as well as her patronage and visits to the Royal Highland Show.  

He said: “Her service to farming and rural communities up and down the country will not be forgotten.” 

President of the Chartered Institute for Environmental Health (CIEH) Julie Barratt added: “This is deeply sad news, and we share the grief felt by millions across the country. 

“We have been honoured with the support we have received from the monarchy since our creation.” 

Chief executive of the CIEH Dr Phil James said that the Queen, throughout her reign, was a “beacon of stability” and “steadfastly committed to serving Britain and the wider Commonwealth.”
