Find out what food and drink events are happening in and around Scotland and beyond.
The Scottish Wholesale Association (SWA) is working with the Scottish Agricultural Organisation Society (SAOS) and Scotland Food & Drink to deliver the next phase of our 'Delivering Growth through Wholesale' programme.
Designed to improve and encourage engagement between producers and wholesalers, the programme will continue with a two-part workshop that provides the tools and information to help wholesalers maximise Scottish sourcing opportunities.
The workshops that will run over two days (19th & 25th January) will delve into the opportunity and why wholesalers should source locally, look deeper at overcoming the barriers of engagement between wholesalers and producers and finally, detail steps they can implement to take advantage of the Scottish sourcing opportunities. Delegates will receive the necessary tools and information to include local sourcing within their strategic business plans and guidance on developing a framework for engagement.
Wholesalers will receive a suite of tools to help them make the most of the opportunity and will receive one to one expert support following the workshops to help apply learnings.
The workshops are open to all wholesalers in Scotland. Those who attend the workshops will receive priority for the Meet the Wholesaler event on March 9th.
The closing date for applications for the workshops is Friday 3rd December at 5pm.
