Aberdeenshire East MSP Gillian Martin is encouraging local food and drink producers in the north-east to apply for funding from the Scottish Government’s Regional Food Fund.

The fund has made £100,000 available for businesses and groups who are undertaking projects to promote regional products and open new markets.

It has so far supported a variety of projects across Scotland and is an excellent opportunity for local businesses, producers and community groups in Aberdeenshire to showcase the best food and drink products in the region.

Ms Martin said: “This fund is an excellent opportunity for producers, businesses and community groups across Aberdeenshire to get the support they need to promote their fantastic local products.

“Scotland’s food and drink sector is a multi-billion-pound industry – and this fund ensures that local producers get the opportunity to fully take advantage of national supply chains and promote their products across the country.

“I strongly encourage any local producers in Aberdeenshire to apply for this fund before the November 24 deadline – the desire for local produce is strong and this support helps make it a reality.”
