Event Overview

This 2024 event will bring together food and drink producers from across the Southern parts of Scotland which encompass Lanarkshire, East Lothian, Ayrshire & Arran, Dumfries & Galloway and the Scottish Borders.

Regional Food Groups and Ambassadors have joined forces to create an event to showcase the best the area has to offer in terms of exceptional produce and will have over 50 suppliers in attendance. We have everything from honey, beer, chocolate, cheese and meat of all varieties through to fish, gin, pickles and so much more. The diverse products available are incredible.

Buyers from retail, wholesale, food service, and tourism sectors and everyone in between from across Scotland and the North of England are invited and a special focus on regional. If you serve or sell food, this event is for you. Our ambition is to grow awareness and drive sales of these delicious and diverse Scottish products. We strive to get more local food on local plates and make this a sustainable food destination, tell our local authentic stories and provide a real sense of place.

Not only will the event host a ‘meet the supplier’ marketplace , but there will be a programme of activity including industry information stands
