Welcome to Scottish Food & Drink Fortnight 2019.  This is a special year as Scotland Food & Drink marks 10 years of delivering this annual celebration of our national larder and the people who produce, cook, serve & sell it and, once again, we’d love to count on your support to make it a success.

Whilst we promote and grow the industry 365 days of the year, this two-week campaign, held from 31st August until 15th September, allows a heightened focus on our sector and, crucially, your role within it.

With major national initiatives, including the UK Market Development Strategy and Food Tourism Scotland action plan well underway, the Fortnight plays an even greater part in increasing the sourcing, selling and promoting of local produce – essential if we are to reach our collective target of achieving a sector worth £30bn by 2030

Whatever part you play in the sector, there are lots of ways to join in and further details, including toolkits and our brand new logo, can be found here www.fooddrinkfort.scot .If we could ask you to do even just one thing, whether that be joining the social chat during the Fortnight, using the branding or launching something new, that will help create a buzz and shout from the rooftops about what you are doing to support and promote our fantastic industry. And there will be prizes up for grabs for the best engagement too.

If you have any questions or would like to chat through some ideas, please contact fiona@foodanddrink.scot

A big thank you for your support!

The Fortnight team
