SCOTLAND’S food and drink sector is big business and, right now, business is booming.


Food and drink is currently worth £5.4 billion – an all-time high. From 2007 to 2011, food exports have increased by an incredible 63 per cent and there are currently 330,000 people employed in the sector in Scotland. That’s 21 per cent of the entire Scottish manufacturing workforce. There is much reason to be proud. So what’s behind this incredible success?

The recipe is simple: provenance and progressive brands.
