Scottish food and drink firms set sights on Asia

Scottish Development International is hosting several Scottish companies at major trade events in the region.

A selection of Scotland’s premium food and drink produce will be on display at one of the world’s biggest trade events which kicks off today in Singapore.

Scottish Development International (SDI), the international arm of Scottish Enterprise, will lead a delegation of 13 companies at Food & Hotel Asia (FHA), the continent’s largest food and drink trade event. Approximately 35,000 attendees from more than 50 countries and regions across the world are expected to attend the event, which should provide the Scottish firms in attendance with valuable access to distributors, importers, manufacturers and retailers. SDI will host the Scottish producers, ranging from whisky distillers and craft brewers to plant-based snack manufacturers and soft fruit growers, on the Scotland pavilion at FHA, which runs until Thursday. It will also co-host a networking reception for buyers at the British High Commissioner’s Residence tomorrow evening.
