Context; Some people are interviewed by the street about If the british food is improving in this years... a person answer:

" We sort of hold our own now with the rest of Europe..."

I do not understand that part, anybody can explaine me what it mean?

    To hold your own means you are sufficiently capable of doing something as well as anyone else.

    "To hold your own" is "defenderse"

    "We sort of hold our own now..." would be something like "Más o menos ya nos defendemos..."
