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.
In doing that 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 events this year will be virtual, we are committed to ensuring they will pack the same punch as our past in-person events.
Both events 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 events will include a dynamic and engaging programme of content that showcases the best of Scottish produce. More information will be provided on the full programme once applications launch in July.
We are looking for local or regional buyers of a major supermarket retailer, group foodservice chain, a public procurement specialist, regional wholesaler or independent operator looking to source the very best produce for your business.
You should be a Scottish food and drink producer from the region with high quality, market-ready product and the ambition and capability to reach new markets and grow your business.
We have two virtual Showcasing Scotland Regional events:
Showcasing Scotland North East and Highlands & Islands – 20 September 2021
Showcasing Scotland Dumfries & Galloway and the Scottish Borders – 28 September 2021
