This week a delegation from Scotland’s food and drink sector arrives in Singapore in an effort to to boost trade links with the city-state and the wider region.


Scotland is blessed with a fantastic larder of some of the best naturally healthy produce in the world.

For that reason, food and drink is Scotland’s top export industry - we sell our produce to over 200 markets worldwide. And Singapore is one of Scotland's top markets. 

As Singapore's economy has continued to grow, so have exports of Scottish food and drink to the region. Between 2006 and 2013 exports to Singapore more than doubled and are worth over £330 million.
