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.
 
The Scotsman Conferences third annual food and drink conference will examine what needs to happen here in Scotland to realise the full potential of an industry that now exports over £6 billion a year.
 
Once again, the Scotsman event will be the signature conference of Scotland’s annual Food and Drink Fortnight.
 
Expert speakers will look at international marketing; support for SMEs to begin exporting; finance; government support; international examples; the environmental impact of growth.

Confirmed expert speakers include:
Carl Paraskevas, Director of Sector Economics, Lloyds Bank Commercial Banking
Simon Briggs, Sales Director, Loch Fyne Oysters
Alex Nicol, Founder, Spencerfield Spirits
James Withers, Chief Executive, Scotland Food and Drink
Andrew Ley, Partner, HBJ Gateley
Stephen Jardine, Founder, Taste Communications (Chair)
