Santander to support 20 Scottish producers at Seafood Expo North America

Scotland Food & Drink, through Scottish Development International, and Santander have been working with Seafood Scotland to support 20 Scottish businesses who will travel to Boston to attend and exhibit at the Seafood Expo North America.


Fri, 09 Mar 2018



Seafood Expo North America takes place from 11-13 March and is the country's largest seafood trade exposition with over 1,340 exhibiting companies from more than 50 countries. The three-day event attracts around 22,600 seafood professionals and attendees include seafood buyers from retail and foodservice industries, wholesalers, distributors, importers, and exporters.

Santander is Scotland Food & Drink's Export Partner, working closely together on a series of internationally focused events. The aim is to demonstrate and deliver export insight to food and drink businesses while supporting the growing sector and Scotland Food & Drink's Ambition 2030 strategy. 

Chris Lynch, International Trade & Working Capital Director at Santander, commented:

"This is a fantastic opportunity for Scottish seafood producers at North America's biggest seafood trade show. Santander will be there to support those businesses who are looking to grow in the US market and will be holding a special seminar for Scottish attendees to hear from an in-market seafood industry specialist about how they can capitalise on the market opportunities in the US. 

 "We are delighted to be able to work closely with Scotland Food & Drink, Seafood Scotland and our colleagues at Santander USA to fully support the international growth ambitions of Scottish businesses into the US market."

Clare MacDougall, Seafood Scotland Trade Marketing Manager for UK and North America added: 

“SENA is an excellent opportunity for Scottish companies wishing to grow their ties with the US market.  Their approach, which is to create innovative products that are designed to suit the target market, has proven successful to date.  We look forward to helping the companies attending this year build on that success, and expand the reach of Scottish seafood in the US.”
