It’s that time again. Every year, Scottish Food & Drink Fortnight celebrates everything that makes food and drink such a special sector.
It’ll run from 4 – 19 September, and during this time will take a ‘virtual tour’ of our food and drink producers, while also looking forward to the opportunities ahead.
Even through the most turbulent times, our long-established businesses and plucky startups grow, manufacture and rear outstanding local produce.
Bursting with passionate, talented and creative people, these brands adapt quickly to conquer any challenge, and are why Scotland’s reputation for exceptional food and drink remains unmatched. And why our appetite for buying Scottish remains unquenched.
So, this Fortnight, let’s shine a light and remind people why Scottish food and drink is worth savouring and worth supporting.
You could be a chef using local ingredients, a regional market, café or shop, a community initiative established during lockdown, a food and drink business embracing Net Zero or a budding entrepreneur eager to try exciting new ideas - it’s all good for the pot. Scotland Food & Drink want to help share your stories with the nation and beyond.
There are many ways in which you can get involved. Here’s some examples:
There’s a toolkit available for you to get inspiration and it includes example social media posts and links to assets you can use as well as more ideas on what you can do. Take a look at the Scottish Food & Drink Fortnight 2021 toolkit.
