Scotland Food & Drink, the leadership organisation for the food & drink industry in Scotland, runs a successful Access to Markets programme that aims to help food & drink companies gain new business opportunities across the UK retail & foodservice sectors, organising activities such as Meet the Buyer and Buyer Briefings; Exhibitions and Workshops; and Supplier Development Programmes.
Working with everyone from independent and multiple retailers to wholesalers, hotel & restaurant groups and contract caterers, this helps to increase the demand for Scottish produce, grow the industry and enhance Scotland’s reputation as a Land of Food & Drink. For further information on the programme and how Scotland Food & Drink can help you source Scottish produce, contact Fiona Richmond, firstname.lastname@example.org Tel: 0131 335 0947 or visit: www.scotlandfoodanddrink.org.
At www.scotlandfoodanddrink.org you’ll also be able to access a range of INSIGHTS. Through INSIGHTS you will be able to find a wealth of information that will keep you informed and up to date in areas such as market intelligence, the economy, emerging innovation and general news.
The Buyers Guide will help you identify food and drink products, producers and suppliers to meet your needs. To make it easy, you can search by product, market type or location, so if you’re looking to add more Scottish food and drink produce to your menu, the Buyers Guide is a great starting point!
The ‘How Do I…’ guides are an invaluable source of business advice to help you develop and grow your business, access new market opportunities and get export advice and legislative guidance. There are also case studies on successful Scottish food and drink businesses.
