Taking place from the 16 - 18 April, the two shows are expecting over 30,000 visitors during the exhibition, during which the Scotland A Land of Food and Drink pavilion will showcase a diverse range of products including fish from Argyll, bakery from the Highlands, craft spirits from Tayside and meat from Fife, plus a wide variety of premium goods.

According to recent research by The Grocer*, there are 3,517 farm shops in the UK, which shows shoppers are continuing to demand more high quality, innovative and unique products with strong provenance credentials, and we know Scottish food and drink satisfies this need.

UK Market Development Director, Lucy Husband said:

"We are delighted to bring 19 Scottish suppliers down to this leading food and drink industry event. Trade exhibitions are an important part of companies' sales strategy and presenting a united, Scottish presence is highly valued by producers. 

"We are looking forward to a busy show and I am confident that the visitors, buyers and key decision makers will be impressed by what our exhibitors have to offer." 

As part of the pavilion, Scotland Food & Drink are working with Angus, Fife and Perth & Kinross Councils to bring 11 producers from the East of Scotland. This will provide smaller producers the opportunity to attend one of the largest trade shows in the UK and showcase the diverse food and drink offering from across the region. 

Graham Glover from Perth & Kinross Council said:

"It’s been fantastic to work on this event with Scotland Food & Drink and my council colleagues from Angus and Fife. Cooperation like this allows us to make the most of our collective knowledge and resources to better help local companies access the new markets so crucial to their future growth.”
