Showcasing Scotland's food and drink to the world.


October 2023

What is Showcasing Scotland?

Showcasing Scotland is Scotland’s largest biennial international food and drink trade event, offering food and drink buyers and Scottish suppliers an unparalleled commercial opportunity on a truly global scale.

Delivered in partnership by Scotland Food & Drink and Scottish Development International, Showcasing Scotland  offers three days of carefully curated events which will showcase the very best of Scotland’s produce, help to build new trade relationships and secure future business.

The Opportunity

Scotland’s larder is world-famous. From salmon and seafood to whisky and meat, Scotland’s food and drink has a global reputation for quality and makes a key contribution to the country’s economy and export performance.

Showcasing Scotland  is the key trade opportunity in the food and drink calendar, offering a commercial opportunity like no other.

We’ll be inviting influential buyers from the UK and key international markets – USA, Canada, France, Germany, Nordics, Middle East (Saudi Arabia, Dubai and Bahrain), China and Hong Kong, Japan, Singapore and Thailand – who all have a strong interest in trading with Scotland and developing their food and drink offering.

Every category of the food and drink industry will be represented: from local artisan producers with fabulous stories to tell, to some of Scotland’s largest national brands and major food manufacturers.

Who should attend?

Scotland Showcasing is a must attend event if you are:

  • A Scottish food and drink producer with a high quality, market-ready product and the ambition and capability to reach new markets, and grow your business
  • A UK or International buyer for a major supermarket retailer, group foodservice chain, a public procurement specialist, or national wholesaler looking to source the very best produce for your business
