Services and industry are the major employers in the UK, and agriculture employs a relatively small workforce of half a million. This is equivalent to —2% of the total civilian workforce, which is low by comparison with all other European countries (1). The food industry, on the other hand, employs more than 2.5 million. Agriculture and the food industry make a considerable contribution to UK exports. There is a high level of trade in food commodities: in 1997, food, beverage, and tobacco accounted for 6.5% of gross domestic product (GDP) as exports and 8.8% of GDP as imports (1).
