Scottish Food and Drink: Scotland's larder - the key to our prosperity?
Scotland’s food and drink sector is the fastest growing industry in the country – and could be the key to our future prosperity.
Recent food and drink export goals were met six years ahead of schedule with a 52% increase in exports between 2007 and 2012.
The new Scotland Food and Drink Export Plan aims to build on this success by focussing on15 key markets, making food and drink as well known internationally as whisky. But with this ambition come challenges as well as opportunities.
