Scotland is gearing up to showcase its finest food and drink selections at Gulfood next week

With the participation of 15 Scottish businesses and organisations facilitated by Scottish Development International, the country is set to impress at the world’s largest F&B exhibition. Among the featured exhibitors are distinguished names like Dean’s shortbread, Lactalis McLelland cheddar, Macduff Shellfish, and The Natural Fruit and Beverage Company.

Notably, the Scottish delegation will emphasise sustainability initiatives and introduce the first-ever Scotch lamb to the region, a significant milestone in culinary exports. The lamb, introduced during a St Andrew’s Day event coinciding with the COP28, signifies Scotland’s commitment to responsible sourcing and production practices.

This year’s showcase at Gulfood underscores Scotland’s dedication to highlighting its diverse range of culinary delights, from award-winning seafood to environmentally friendly packaging solutions. The addition of halal Scotch lamb further enhances Scotland’s presence in the UAE market, with Quality Meat Scotland and Woodhead Brothers leading the way.

Scottish Development International Regional Director James Keating said, “Our participation once again at Gulfood underscores our commitment to showcasing the best food and drink that Scotland has to offer the region. In collaboration with our colleagues from Scotland’s Food & Drink Partnership, Seafood Scotland and Quality Meat Scotland, we have a diverse range of companies participating in this year’s Gulfood, and we are looking forward to engaging with key trade buyers, distributors and industry leaders at the event to strengthen existing partnerships and forge new ones.”

Scotland’s Pavilion at Gulfood, located in Sheikh Saeed Hall 1, Stand S1 B14 at the Dubai World Trade Centre from 19-23 February, will highlight the best of Scottish food and drink from 15 esteemed companies, including Amity Fish Co, Dean’s of Huntly Ltd, and Highland Spring Ltd, among others. This showcase underscores Scotland’s global leadership in sustainable F&B production, with the country’s food and drink sector being its top international export, valued at nearly £350 million annually to the Middle East & North Africa region.
