ACCORDING to figures released by the SSPO yesterday, the value of fresh and smoked Scottish salmon exports to Japan has increased from £2 million in 2009 to £4.8 million in 2011.

Welcoming the export success, Scott Landsburgh, Chief Executive of organisation, said: “Japan is an emerging market with great potential.  The market value has more than doubled in a three year period and is now worth £4.8 million. We are confident that it will grow further. 

“The sushi and sashimi markets are achieving a very high rate of growth globally. It is a trendy product and Scottish salmon is perfectly suited because of its quality, freshness and great taste,” he added. 

The value of fresh and smoked salmon exports (£4.8 million) represent almost a third of Scotland’s total food exports to Japan (£16.2 million).
