Welcome to Scottish Food & Drink Fortnight 2018

Scottish Food & Drink Fortnight 2018 takes place between 1-16 September and provides the perfect opportunity for everyone to get involved in celebrating and enjoying fantastic Scottish produce, whether they’re a chef, producer, retailer, caterer, hotelier, school, organisation or food enthusiast.

The campaign for this year is themed around the future of Scotland’s food and drink industry. We want to stimulate discussion and debate and create excitement about the industry to help spread the message that Scotland’s food and drink sector really is the place to be.

Essentially, we want to encourage more people than ever to buy, eat and promote Scottish food and drink and we’d like you and your business to be part of the nation’s biggest food and drink celebration.

The Campaign - #ScotFoodGoals

#ScotFoodGoals is our official campaign hashtag for Scottish Food & Drink Fortnight 2018.

Scotland Food & Drink have set their #ScotFoodGoals to become a £30bn industry by 2030, but what’s yours? Whether you’re old or young, work in the food and drink industry or not, we want to know about your ideas or ambitions, big or small, that will help the industry continue to thrive.

The campaign will be a platform to champion our talented young people and celebrate young entrepreneurs, chefs, producers and farmers and those working in retail and hospitality, highlighting the fact that everyone has a part to play in ensuring its continued survival and growth.

Year of Young People

As it’s the Year of Young People 2018, we’re recruiting a group of amazing young ambassadors who are currently working in the food and drink industry.

Year of Young People 2018 celebrates everything that makes Scotland’s young people incredible.

As a nation proud of our young people, #YOYP2018 puts the spotlight on eight to 26 year olds, while giving them a stronger voice on issues that matter to them and providing a platform to promote and celebrate the talents, achievements and contributions to our country.

A world-first initiative, it’s young people’s time to shine.  Join in via #YOYP2018 @YOYP2018 yoyp2018.scot
