About the show

Scotland’s Speciality Food Show 2018 will be the 10th year that the show has been running in its present format and it is the result of a joint venture between Scotland’s Food Show in Glasgow and the Speciality Food Show in Edinburgh, which has created Scotland’s largest trade sourcing event for the speciality food market.  This year the show has been fully incorporated into the Trade event and will dominate the top end of the hall and will host all the main catering areas for the two shows as well.

The show is 3 days from 21st to 23rd January at Glasgow’s SEC with 130 companies exhibiting all types of speciality food including gift food, bakery, cheese, cooked and cured meats, chutneys, preserves, oil and vinegars, herbs and spices, confectionery, tea and coffee, beers, spirits and cordials.  There are also exhibitors who specialise in food presentation such as lighting, packaging, refrigeration etc.

1000 trade buyers from department stores, farm shops, delis, food halls, restaurants and hotels will be at Scotland’s Speciality Food Show 2018.

SSFS 2018 Seminar Theatre

In our Seminar Theatre area in the centre of the show we will be hosting a number of events to educate and entertain visitors and exhibitors alike.  Keep a look out on the website and we will let you know the programme as events are confirmed over the next few months.

Launch Gallery

The aim of the Launch Gallery is to provide new companies with strong ideas with a suitable platform to present their products to the market. In addition it provides retailers with an easy and simple way of discovering who the stars of the future might be. The Gallery uses a different stand fitting system to stand out from the rest of the show.

Companies chosen to exhibit in the Launch Gallery must showcase innovative products with strong commercial appeal.

The Gallery is subsidised by the show to lower the barriers of entry for young companies and create an affordable sales and marketing opportunity for them.
