Food and drink companies across Tayside and Fife are invited to a free seminar organised in partnership with Angus, Dundee, Perth & Kinross and Fife Councils.

 

There are many support organisations who can help you start and grow your food and drink business in the East of Scotland and this seminar will give you the chance to meet and chat with key representatives from these organisations.

 

Councillor Altany Craik, Convener of the Economy, Tourism, Strategic Planning & Transportation Committee at Fife Council said, “We are delighted to be supporting this free event designed to showcase and boost food and drink businesses across the East of Scotland. Fife has a thriving tourism industry and agriculture, fishing and the drinks industry are big business for the local economy. There is also significant potential to develop this sector and generate more, smarter, better paid jobs within food and drink. Food and drink is a key sector for the Angus, Dundee, Perth and Kinross and North East Fife economies and is key within the Tay Cities Deal. A number of proposed projects are being progressed that will build on the cluster of universities, colleges and research bodies, such as James Hutton Institute and SRUC (Scotland’s Rural College), to drive forward innovation and support SME’s to grow and develop.”

 

This is a full day event comprising of keynote speakers, a quick fire session with short presentations by those attending, and a chance to speak with the organisations represented there. There will also be lots of time built in for networking. This event has been organised as a partnership between Angus Council, Perth & Kinross Council, Fife Council, Dundee City Council and Abertay University.

 

Any food and drink business from Angus, Dundee, Perth & Kinross or Fife is eligible to attend this event, along with members of the agricultural community, professional services specialising in food and drink, postgraduate students and academics.
