Record High for Scottish Seed Exports

It has been announced that exports of Scottish seed potatoes to non-EU countries have hit a high of almost 78,000 tonnes for 2011/12. This is an increase of nearly 70% on 10 years ago.

The Scottish seed industry is worth around 100 million pounds and has a truly global reputation. The industry remains free from major diseases such as Dickeya, Brown rot and Ring rot, unlike some of their competitors.

The Higgins seed business is a major contributor to this success. We export annually to over 20 countries as far a field as North Africa, the Middle East and the Far East.

We have been instrumental in developing new export markets for Scottish seed and in breeding varieties to suit those climates and conditions. We continue to invest in the export market building on the success of delivering first class seed potatoes throughout the world.
