Scottish Development International along with its industry partners are hosting a virtual Global Foodservice Summit bringing senior culinarians from North America, Europe and Asia to Scotland for 3-4 hours per day of informative and engaging content.

Meet and discover over 40 producers, see sites and facilities and taste Scotland.


Summit delegates are senior Executive Chefs, culinarians and menu development professionals like you. They are senior F&B directors and industry leaders looking to make a difference and want to meet new and exciting producers ready to provide solutions.


We aim to create meaningful connections for you, to help inform and let you discover the breadth of great Scottish produce and how to get it. We want to provide a distinct and engaging experience.

Places are invitation only. We would like to invite you as our exclusive guest and participant, where you can experience, learn, discover and taste the very latest from Scotland and to discover how you can source more from Scotland.

Why Now?

We know the industry is in a state of tremendous change but great innovation, talent and ingredients still lay at the heart of great customer experience. We want to help.

The power of food and drink lies in our ability to create experiences, share the provenance and tell the story - to have culinarians try, taste and see produce. Scotland is doing just that. Producers are ready to meet professionals like you forging the changes in foodservice.
