Connect Local is a free, advisory service for the local Scottish food and drink sector. It is delivered by a team of experts from SAC, SAOS, Scotland Food & Drink and Seafood Scotland, and funded by Scottish Government and European Maritime and Fisheries Fund.
About the Service
We offer advice and guidance to:
- Local food and drink businesses and organisations
- Common interest groups
We can work with you on a one to one basis, in a small group of people with similar challenges, or provide larger events to reach a much wider audience.
If you think we can help, please contact the team.
- Change behaviour in food and drink production, promotion, procurement and ultimately consumer purchasing towards local choices.
- Develop the quality, nutritional content and added value propositions of food and drink producers to meet the demands of consumers, retail, foodservice, and hospitality customers.
- Strengthen the local food and drink economy including the seafood supply chain (diversifying and improving access to local markets).
