Scottish food and drink manufacturers have led the country’s manufacturing sector to achieve a record £21M of business efficiency savings in the past year, according to new figures from Scottish Enterprise.

The food and drink sector achieved the most savings, totalling £4.1M.

The sector, together with energy and engineering industries, delivered a total of 75 business improvement projects out of a total of 184.

‘Transformational projects’

Finance secretary John Swinney said: “The £21M of savings shows the delivery of more high value, transformational projects which has helped improve production techniques, reduce costs and boost their competitiveness.”

The savings were made with the help of the Scottish Manufacturing Advisory Service (SMAS). Since its launch in 2006, SMAS has delivered 870 business improvement projects contributing more than £110M of value added benefits to Scotland’s economy, said Swinney.
