Not-for-profit organisation Scotland Food & Drink has launched an event to encourage Scottish whisky and spirits distillers to grow its sales through online retailer Amazon.
The event, which takes place on January 31, is looking to give distilleries the opportunity to hear from the Amazon.co.uk team about their business and learn about what they look for from suppliers.
The briefing will cover an overview of Amazon.co.uk and itsstrategy, what it would mean to become a supplier, why companies should consider trading with Amazon.co.uk, opportunities for suppliers in Scotland and a Q&A session.
It will also host a Meet the Buyer session where companies are invited to apply for a one-to-one with the grocery team, to present products and discuss how they fit with Amazon.co.uk's trading requirements.
Amazon.co.uk is looking to develop its whisky and spirits offer in order to strengthen its current range. It is particularly interested in meeting distillers who are able to offer high-end products including premium spirits and malt whisky, and who have the capacity to manage volumes and a consistent supply.
Scotland Food & Drink is supported by the Scottish government and was created to guide food and drink companies of all sizes towards increased profitability, with the aim of growing the industry to a value of £12.5 billion by 2017.
