Taking place during Scotland’s Year of Food and Drink 2015, the trade show, with more than eight hundred firms exhibiting, is expected to attract more than 12,000 visitors.

Elaine Jamieson, head of food and drink at HIE, said: “The Speciality and Fine Food fair offers ambitious businesses a very real opportunity to get into new markets and win more orders. It is fantastic to see the Highlands and Islands represented at events such as this in London, and others right across the world, by such high quality businesses.”
