Taking place on Tuesday 14th May at Discovery Point in Dundee, Tayside Tayside & Fife 2024 was a busy and successful event.

Thirty four fantastic producers from across Perthshire, Angus, Fife and Dundee arrived and set out some terrific displays of their products. Over 30 buyers from sectors including buying groups, wholesalers, large caterers, hospitality businesses, and specialist retailers attended, plus representatives from a range of support organisations and industry bodies. There was a tremendous buzz in the venue as productive conversations got under way. At least 18 new buying relationships have been reported and a similar number of new listings.

For producers, the showcase was followed after a lunch (of locally sourced food, naturally) by an interactive workshop with an expert panel discussing the topic of ‘How to Grow Your Business & Explore New Routes to Market’. Thanks to Colin Smith (Scottish Wholesale Association), Graeme Ferguson (Invest Fife), Clair Smith (GrowBiz) and George Ellis (Business Gateway Tayside) for bringing their insight, and to the producers who added to the conversation.

 

This event was run jointly by the Appetite for Angus, Eat & Drink Dundee, Food from Fife and Great Perthshire regional food groups with support from Scotland Food & Drink. We hope to run similar events in the future; if you are interested in participating please get in touch.
