Scotland 2015: The Year of Food & Drink

Admin, February 2, 2015

2014 saw Scotland’s Homecoming and the stage was also set for world renowned sporting events the Commonwealth Games and the Ryder Cup (which we were very proud to be official suppliers to) A record number of visitors came to Scotland and found out that we have an abundance of fantastic natural resources that can be drawn upon to provide a truly world class larder.

With that in mind, in 2015 we celebrate Scotland’s Year of Food and Drink, an initiative created by national organisation, Scotland Of Food & Drink, in partnership with the Scottish Government,VisitScotland and EventScotland.

The aim of the year is to mark, highlight and promote Scotland’s produce and it’s makers to our people and visitors; demonstrating that we are a destination for delicious food and drink while highlighting the sectors key role in our economic growth and cultural development.

Throughout the year, a series of monthly themes central to the outstanding food we provide and where it came from has been developed. We are very pleased to tell you that Scotland Food & Drink thought we were suitably charming and romantic enough to be associated with ‘Food of Love’ February! (well…it was probably more because honey is a known aphrodisiac) We also want to take part because we’re engaged with the passion of James Withers and his dedicated team who champion Scotland’s bounteous larder at every turn; supporting food and drink producers, small and large in this country by showcasing what we have to the world whilst encouraging Scots to think, eat and buy local.

So, this month’s blogs, news and our social media channels will be bursting with passionate and enchanting articles about the Food of Love and other amorous notions. We’re also going to be presenting you with a romantic gift of one of our Red Heart Gift Boxes complete with mood candles & sweet honey – honeys. Each week in February we’ll pose a question on our twitter feed related to one of the articles, so turn up to all our dates and keep fluttering your eyes for a chance to win.
