Export and UK Markets

Opportunities are waiting for you. Scottish exports surged in 2022 compared to 2021, with strong growth seen in particular in the EU and Western Europe (excl. EU). 

Growth was seen not just in whisky and seafood, but in categories such as meat and healthy oat and cereal products.


The UK market cannot be ignored either. The UK Grocery Market is valued at £110 billion annually, and the Out-of-Home Market boasts a worth of £90 billion. 

Independent research highlights that 46% of UK shoppers seek Scottish products due to the 'much better quality'. They aren't wrong.
