Targeting premium markets
The industry ambition is to double exports and the number of food and drink companies exporting by 2030.
The market development manager, a joint post between Opportunity North East (ONE) and Scotland Food & Drink (SF&D), supports businesses to access new markets. The manager provides one-to-one advice, market intelligence and insights, access to sales expertise, and connects manufacturers with major retailers and foodservice businesses.
The annual North East Scotland Food & Drink Awards, a partnership between ONE and Aberdeenshire Council, provides a platform to drive new product development and showcase excellence within the sector.
Food producers are supported to develop quality visitor experiences through the food and drink tourism programme.
To help businesses target premium international markets, ONE supports the Scotland Food and Drink Export Partnership along with the Scottish Government and other industry bodies, which is delivered by Scottish Development International (SDI). It provides access to food and drink specialists based in priority international markets and a range of meet-the-buyer programmes abroad and in Scotland, including bespoke events in the NE.
The ONE Food & Drink Export Development Programme, delivered in partnership with SDI, also provides early-stage or new exporting businesses with support in developing and implementing export strategies.
