Focus on food firms

FOUR trailblazing food and drink businesses from the region are playing a starring role in a new promotional tourism campaign.

Kitchen Coos and Ewes in the Luce Valley, near Stranraer; the Ethical Dairy near Gatehouse of Fleet; The Globe Inn in Dumfries and Annandale Distillery at Annan; and Barony Country Foods at Lockerbie are fronting the £6000 initiative, delivered by the South of Scotland Destination Alliance (SSDA) and funded by the Regional Food Fund.

They are being profiled in a dedicated multimedia campaign on SSDA channels, including its Scotland Starts Here website and blog, with the aim of showcasing the quality experiences available locally.

David Hope Jones, chief executive of the SSDA, said: “We’re incredibly lucky in the South of Scotland to have such a fantastic range of superb food and drink businesses, offering unforgettable experiences for visitors and local communities to enjoy.

“These examples of local excellence are sure to whet people’s appetite, inspiring them to visit and sample the experiences first-hand. We’re very grateful to the Scotland Food and Drink Partnership for making this initiative possible, helping us celebrate the cream of our region’s food and drink experiences.”
