Scotland produces some of the highest quality food and drink anywhere in the world. The passion and innovation of our producers, alongside the exceptional quality and variety of the products, is what makes Scottish food and drink an exciting proposition for UK retailers, wholesalers, and foodservice companies.
It has not been an easy couple of years for the Scottish supply chain with most businesses pivoting and adapting during what has been a very uncertain time. We want to do everything we can do to help businesses survive, but most importantly, thrive.
We want to encourage people to think more carefully about the origin of their food and drink. We want businesses to commit to sourcing more from local suppliers and telling the story behind them.
Even though our Showcasing Scotland Regional events this year will be virtual, we are committed to ensuring they will pack the same punch as our past in-person events.
Both events will use our traditional Showcasing Scotland business matchmaking model and will bring together regional buyers, producers and suppliers to meet and build relationships to secure future business.
As well as the pre-arranged, one-to-one meetings, the two events will include a dynamic and engaging programme of content that showcases the best of Scottish produce. The full event programme will be available once applications launch in July.
If you are a regional grocery or food service buyer, an independent retailer or wholesaler, a restaurant or café, bar or deli, accommodation provider or tourist destination, we invite you to join us at Showcasing Scotland Regional where we can introduce you to some of the region’s best local food and drink suppliers in one day, under one roof (virtually).
We are looking for Scottish food and drink producers from both regions with high quality, market-ready product and the ambition and capability to reach new markets and grow your business. We will help you make the right connections, do deals and build long term sustainable growth.
We have one virtual Showcasing Scotland Regional event:

For all businesses based in the East and South of Scotland regions, we are hoping to do similar events in early 2022 and will keep you updated on plans around these.
