Grow exports

Get ready to make the most of new markets and new opportunities.

Let us help you go and grow global 

Exporting may seem daunting but it’s a proven way to grow your business and manage exposure to markets. Growing exports also plays a major role in boosting Scotland’s food and drink sector and burnishing our international reputation. 


Whether you’re looking to export for the first time or develop existing export activity, we can provide all the support you need to join Scotland’s export drive. Our comprehensive package of support includes: 

  • Insights about opportunities abroad and how to target them 
  • New connections and contacts 
  • Export development programmes to help with strategy and logistics 
  • Support with accreditation, such as BRCGS 

Our programme is just as invaluable to international buyers – being a rewarding and effective way to meet brilliant producers and make the most of the very best in Scottish food and drink.
