Food and the city economy

The food sector is big business in all cities. In Birmingham, as well as retailers selling ~£3bn food to feed us all, there are several major UK food suppliers and distributors here. The city also has a growing reputation as a centre for gourmet food. We have four Michelin starred restaurants plus others offering superb cuisine from all over the world.
