Record year for food and drink exports

Food and drink exports from Scotland grew by £421 million in 2016, to a record £5.5 billion. The latest figures show an 8% increase in the value of exports to Scotland’s successful food and drink sector over the past year.

The figures show that:

  • Food exports alone grew by 22% to £1.5 billion.
  • The fish and seafood category recorded the largest overall increase of £156 million (up 26%), with Europe the leading export destination.
  • Exports to EU countries were worth £2.3 billion overall, up £133 million last year.
  • Scotch Whisky exports grew by £153 million (up 4%) to over £4 billion in 2016.

These figures come ahead of the launch of a new industry strategy on 23 March, which will outline plans to support and grow the sector to 2030.
