Scotland produces some of the highest quality food and drink anywhere in the world. The passion and innovation of our producers, alongside the exceptional quality and variety of the products, is what makes Scottish food and drink an exciting proposition for UK retailers, wholesalers, and foodservice companies.
It has not been an easy couple of years for the Scottish supply chain with most businesses pivoting and adapting during what has been a very uncertain time. We want to do everything we can do to help businesses survive, but most importantly, thrive.
We want to encourage people to think more carefully about the origin of their food and drink. We want businesses to commit to sourcing more from local suppliers and telling the story behind them.
Even though our Showcasing Scotland Regional - North East and Highlands & Islands event taking place on Tuesday 2 November will be virtual, we are committed to ensuring it packs the same punch as our past in-person events.
The event will use our traditional Showcasing Scotland business matchmaking model and will bring together regional buyers, producers and suppliers to meet and build relationships to secure future business.
As well as the pre-arranged, one-to-one meetings, the event will include a dynamic and engaging programme of content that showcases the best of Scottish produce. The full event programme will be available soon.
If you are a grocery or foodservice buyer, an independent retailer or wholesaler, a restaurant or café, bar or deli, accommodation provider or tourism business, from the specified region or are interested in speaking to regional food and drink suppliers, then apply now.
