Scotland Food & Drink sets revised £12.5 billion growth targets

Scotland Food & Drink has unveiled new industry growth targets of £12.5bn (£13.8bn), and announced the backing of three additional sectors – fishing, aquaculture and agriculture.

At its recent AGM, the leadership organisation urged the continued collaboration of the entire industry to help bring Scotland out of recession and gain a competitive edge in lucrative global markets.

The target to grow the industry to £12.5bn by 2017 is a £2.5bn increase on its previous target of £10bn. Based on comprehensive research and analysis, supported by Scottish Enterprise, the target is underpinned by extensive consultation with each sector of Scotland’s food and drink industry, including more than 300 food and drink companies, sector representative organisations, enterprise agencies and the Scottish government.
