Scotland's food and drink celebration

Every September, Scottish Food & Drink Fortnight celebrates the people, products and places that are championing our industry.

Scotland Food & Drink is celebrating producers, manufacturers, retailers, foodservice, hospitality, regional food groups and ambassadors.    

Our nation’s larder is one of the most diverse in the world. Although we don’t mean to, it’s easy to forget that the products we enjoy day-to-day, or during special occasions, are brought to us by hardworking people operating right under our noses.

Discover what’s on your doorstep

‘Discover what’s on your doorstep’ is the theme for Scottish Food & Drink Fortnight 2023.

This year the focus is on encouraging the country to discover the incredible produce from their regions and the businesses across Scotland that are stocked in everywhere from shops, restaurants, cafes and bars to delis and markets.

Scotland Food & Drink is working closely with Regional Food Groups and Regional Food Ambassadors to promote a line up of fantastic regional events, as well as spotlighting retailers of all sizes who are championing the supply of Scottish produce on our shelves.
