Food and drink is of huge importance to the Scottish economy and one of the country's most dynamic and successful sectors.

The Scottish food and drink supply chain is made up of over 34,000 companies who employ nearly 360,000 people. We are witnessing a period of unprecedented prosperity and growth in the Scottish food and drink sector, with the most recent figures showing Scottish food and drink exports were worth approximately £6 billion in 2017 - almost £570 million more than 2016.

Here at Brodies we understand that the industry is in an exciting, yet challenging, period with political uncertainty through Brexit, high growth targets, a changing regulatory environment, rising commodity prices and significant economic pressures.

We appreciate that our clients need to reflect and adapt to a continually changing environment, so we are active in keeping them abreast of new developments in the sector to ensure that they are ahead of the curve.
