The UK’s ‘farm to fork’ sector—which includes agriculture, catering, as well as food and beverage manufacturing, wholesaling, and retailing—contributed £121.6 billion to the country’s economy in 2017. Consumer spending, meanwhile, showed a continued upward trend in the past decade, increasing by 34% since 2009.
This sector is evolving rapidly. However, food and drink businesses also face increasing demands from consumers, more business challenges (e.g. packing, traceability, health issues), price fluctuations, and retailer consolidation.
At AK Tax, we’ll make sure your business stays flexible enough to weather these changes. Our specialised accounting services cater to the entire food and catering supply chain—from farming to distribution to restaurants and caterers.
There is a huge demand in the country’s food and drink sector, as evidenced by the £88 billion that consumers spent in 2017 alone. This means more competitors are showing up in this area, which ultimately affects supermarket prices and the prices of raw materials.
Whether you’re a wholesale supplier, franchise restaurant, food truck, bars, cafes, or takeaway venues, you need an accountant who has extensive experience in this industry to help you maintain a profitable business. Our services tailored to the food and drink sector include:
We have three packages to suit most needs, however, if it’s not quite tailored enough then please get in touch as bespoke packages are always an option.

Left it a bit late with my accounts and tax return, but I got a quick appointment and they managed to get it all sorted out in time. Thanks guys.
AK Tax are a fantastic company that I wish we'd found years ago. As a small business, we do the reconciling and basic things ourselves, so it's really helpful to have a low cost accountant to check things over and answer any questions we've got. Really good service and value!
We pass many high-value transactions through our property companies, and AK Tax & Accountancy have always helped us to get things sorted out. We have also been able to move onto Xero software which has made the bookkeeping so much easier. We have been with this company for a number of years and I have no hesitation in writing this strong review. A good company to work with!
Amazing company to be with, always have time for you and deal with things straight away. I can't recommend AK enough, Andy and the team have made my life so much more simple.
I needed some help getting my tax affairs in order. The AK Tax team sorted me out and then made everything easy going forward. Great service.
Preparing your self-assessment tax returns can be a stressful process and is one of life’s necessary evils. Having done all that work to get your finances in order though, only to get scammed out of your hard-earned money, can be downright devastating. The unfortunate reality is that there are plenty of opportunists looking to prey […]
We’ve always made it clear that we think Xero is great. And one of the things we do with our clients when they start with Xero is get everything set up and give them the training they need (see our packages here). If you’re making the journey alone for the moment, however, here’s our quick […]
