Johnston Carmichael to highlight food and drink investment opportunities
Accountancy and business advisory firm Johnston Carmichael will highlight the opportunities for investment in Scottish food and drink at a major London event tomorrow.
Adam Hardie, partner and head of food and drink at Johnston Carmichael, is a speaker at the Invest in British Business event hosted by The League of Angels, an exclusive global investors club.
Hundreds of influential guests are expected to attend, including Prince Michael of Kent, several foreign ambassadors, prominent business owners and senior UK government representatives.
The day will feature sessions on investment strategy, SEIS funding, access to SME capital and UK imports and exports.
Mr Hardie said: “Scotland is renowned internationally for its rich natural larder, with Scottish food and drink accounting for a quarter of the UK sector and growing twice the rate of the rest of the industry across the UK.
“As the sector grows it continues to attract some extremely talented and ambitious entrepreneurs offering exciting new products with the potential to achieve success on the world stage.
“By showcasing the sector, we hope to meet UK and overseas investors with an appetite for Scottish food and drink.”
