It is just over a year since we launched the Scotland Food & Drink Partnership’s Recovery Plan, and collectively we have been delivering transformational programmes that are building the resilience and capability of the food and drink industry in Scotland. 

Through the ongoing collaboration of the Partnership, we will continue to develop bold and exciting market-facing opportunities both domestically and internationally and are committed to showing leadership on the larger issues and opportunities like net zero.

Here is a flavour of what has been achieved so far.
