Scotland has some of the best food and drink in the world. Our whisky is the stuff of legend, Scottish seafood is a global delicacy and innovative manufacturers are transforming traditional produce into contemporary products.
Last year food and drink exports hit a record £5.4 billion. One in five people in manufacturing currently work in the sector. If Scottish Companies are to continue to succeed internationally and at home, they need to continue to innovate - they also need the support mechanisms in place to help them succeed.
On Wednesday 5 September, Scotsman Conferences, in association with Taste Communications will host a conference which will examine the challenges and opportunities facing the industry.
The conference will hear from a range of industry experts, with the keynote address by Richard Lochhead MSP, the Cabinet Secretary for Rural Affairs and Environment.

- James Withers, Chief Executive, Scotland Food & Drink
- Maggie McGinlay, Food and Drink Director, Scottish Enterprise
- Graham Blair, Area Director for North Scotland, Lloyds TSB
- Robert Graham, Chief Executive of Graham Dairies
