£100,000 of funding from the Scottish Government has been confirmed to help local projects promote food products from their region and establish new markets.
Graeme Dey MSP has said that the latest round of the Scottish Government’s Regional Food Fund will help to bolster businesses across Angus and showcase produce from Appetite for Angus across Scotland and beyond.
Appetite for Angus is among 22 local and collaborative initiatives throughout Scotland, including food festivals, food and drink trails, markets and online shops, who will benefit from the Regional Foods Fund with grants of up to £5,000 – continuing to support local food and drink businesses through the Tory cost of living crisis.
Initiatives like the Regional Food Fund is just one way in which the SNP Scottish Government is delivering for Scotland’s food and drink industry, as the sector continues to struggle in the aftermath of the Tory UK government’s botched Brexit deal.
Managed by Scotland Food & Drink, the fund from the SNP Government will help to support and grow local and regional economies by encouraging projects like Appetite for Angus to market and sell their local products.
