Be part the nation’s biggest food and drink celebration.

The annual celebration of Scotland’s food and drink sector is currently underway, lasting until 15 September. It highlights the fantastic people and products that make this industry so special.

Scottish Food & Drink Fortnight is celebrating its 10th anniversary. It's not too late to join in:

  • Engage your chef to demonstrate how your sector’s excellent products/ingredients can be used and where people can buy them
  • Highlight the fantastic suppliers you work with
  • Tell your food & drink story on social media using #scotfoodfort19 and @scotfooddrink

And that's just a few. Take a look at the website for more inspiration.

The fortnight aims to encourage more people than ever to buy, eat and promote Scottish food and drink. That way, it’ll further fuel the demand for local produce, ensure that our businesses, of all shapes and sizes, continue to thrive and, together, build an even stronger food and drink economy and reputation.
