Whether you went to bed last night overwhelmed with horror and uncertainty or with a big smile on your face all depends on your political affiliations. But what might a Trump presidency mean for the US food and beverage industry, and your business specifically?

Could the Trump victory create a liberalized, more business-friendly environment, or does it spell bad news for trade, the environment and food safety?

Thus far Trump has not talked much about food policy or agriculture beyond describing the FDA as the ‘food police ’ (in a fact sheet later removed from his website), calling for an immediate halt to new federal regulations, and talking of significantly curtailing the powers of the EPA - prompting food policy expert Dr Marion Nestle to suggest that nutrition, food safety and sustainability may not be high up the policy agenda under the Trump administration.

However, some commentators believe he may run a more 'pro-business' administration.
