Over 20 Fife companies will be attending the only trade show in Scotland for the speciality food and drink sector taking place later this month. .


A number of the companies are attending Scotland’s Speciality Food Show from 19 to 21 January 2020 at Glasgow’s SECC with assistance from Fife Council’s Trade Development Programme, which supports companies to attend and exhibit at trade shows and exhibitions in the UK and abroad.


Fife Council’s Economic Development Team provides a range of support services to businesses from advice and information, to customised training supporting the exhibition experience as well as wider market and trade development needs.


This support allows small and medium sized businesses the chance to exhibit to around 1,000 dedicated food buyers of delis, farm shops, speciality food retailers and food hall buyers at the show.


Fife Council will be exhibiting the very best offerings from Fife food and drink producers at Scotland’s Speciality Food Show.  There will also be Fife companies located within the show’s Launch Gallery area, giving them the opportunity to meet new trade and retail customers and accelerate the growth rate of their business.


Councillor Altany Craik, Convener of Fife Council’s Economy, Tourism, Strategic Planning & Transportation Committee, said: “We know there’s significant potential to further develop Fife’s Food and Drink Sector and as a council we’re delighted to be able to help local businesses showcase their produce at this, the only trade show for the speciality food and drink market in Scotland.  This support is part of the continual rollout of our Food and Drink Action Plan which is designed to ensure that business support is available from both Fife Council and its partners to Fife food and drink companies of all sizes.”
