Massive 88% increase in profits for Scottish fish processors is further proof of boom in food and drinks industries which suggests the ability to thrive after Brexit and after independence


The Scottish Fisherman’s Organisation is a collective, which processes catches for its members and has just reported a whopping (technical term) 88% increase in profits. This comes at the same time as other evidence of massive growth in the Scottish food and drinks industries which are currently dominating the UK export market. See, for example:

SNP Minister intervenes to ensure more fish are landed in Scotland to benefit both fishermen and local businesses that depend on fishing

With only 8% of the population, Scotland accounts for more than 28% of UK food and drink exports. Too wee to survive on our own?

As Scotland massively increases its number of breweries and distilleries, food and drink start-ups here have had a higher survival rate and have grown at a faster rate than in the rest of the UK

Scottish Government awards 13 firms £3.5m in new grants to maintain push for growth in food and drink sales

Dramatic growth in Scottish fish and shellfish farming output. More evidence we can thrive.

Scottish Fisheries stocks to rise significantly this year

Turnover for the group rose 40% to £19.1 million with exports accounting for £11.61 million of that and confidence is high for the year ahead.

Is this all? How can we expect to survive? We’ll starve! 😊
