Sourcing Scotland: Buyers

A buyer for 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.

Over the past eighteen months, we’ve seen the growing importance consumers have placed on buying quality, sustainable local produce.

67% of Scottish shoppers now say that where their food is being made or produced is becoming increasingly important to them, whilst seven out of ten Scottish shoppers think that food and drink produced in Scotland is better quality than anywhere else*.

And as this sentiment continues to increase, giving consumers widespread access to quality, sustainable and locally produced Scottish products across different channels can be a growth opportunity for buyers across retail, foodservice, and wholesale industries.

Event format 

Sourcing Scotland will help you take advantage of this timely opportunity by introducing you to some of Scotland’s finest suppliers, all under one roof.

We will work with you to set up a series of one-to-one meetings with suppliers you are interested in where you can discuss their products, identify potential business opportunities and ultimately, build relationships.

There will also be a marketplace where you can take your time browsing stalls, meeting suppliers and looking at, and tasting, their products.

Register

Please join us from Open Marketplace from 12.45pm to browse over 60 supplier stands and a locally-sourced lunch. 

Please email meethebuyer@foodanddrink.scot by 12noon, Monday 30th May. Hope to see you there!
