Scotland’s Food Tourism Action Plan

Wed 4 Sep 19

How your business can harness the potential of Scotland’s £1bn food tourism growth ambition?

The Food Tourism Scotland Action Plan, a joint initiative between Scotland Food & Drink, the Scottish Tourism Alliance and the Scottish Government was launched last year by the First Minister to bring Scotland’s food and drink and tourism sectors together to capitalise on the growing demand for destinations to offer “quality food and drink, with clear provenance and real, memorable experiences”.

Measures in the plan include:

  • The creation of a food tourism apprenticeship programme
  • Supporting the top 100 visitor attractions achieve ‘Taste Our Best’, our quality assurance accreditation scheme promoting local sourcing
  • Improved marketing for food and drink tourism
  • Creating the next generation of agri-tourism monitor farms to stimulate diversification
  • A further programme of Showcasing Scotland events – bringing regional buyers and suppliers together

You can read the Food Tourism Scotland Action Plan here and get involved immediately by engaging with some of the initiatives happening over the next month.
