Brodies LLP Invitation to Annual Food & Drink Conference

Posted: 10th October 2017

Brodies LLP invite you to join their annual food and drink conference at Perth Racecourse.

This year’s conference theme will be growth, and will be held Friday, 03 November from 09:30 – 15:30.

We are witnessing a period of unprecedented prosperity in the Scottish food and drink sector, with exports valued at £1.2 billion for the first three months of 2017 – a year-on-year increase of £124 million. 2016 was a record year for food and drink and this trend shows every sign of continuing.

Scotland Food & Drink’s strategy to grow the sector to £30 billion by 2030 will require investment across all areas, including people, skills development, supply chain management and innovation.

Our conference will provide an opportunity to hear from industry experts on how they have grown their businesses and plan further expansion, whether by achieving their own strategic objectives or through greater industry collaboration.

Further speakers and the full conference programme will be announced in due course, but in the meantime we are delighted to confirm the following industry experts:

• James Withers, Chief Executive – Scotland Food & Drink
• Ton Christiaanse, UK Chief Executive – Brakes Group
• Dougal Sharp, Founder & Chief Brewer – Innis & Gunn
• Tony Lamb, Head of Food & Drink – Department for International Trade
