First food and drink showcase was a hit

MORE than 50 food and drink producers from across the Lowlands came together in Dumfries on Monday to showcase their wares.

They took part in the Showcasing the Larder of the Lowlands event at the Easterbrook Hall, with the chance to meet buyers from the Scottish Borders, Dumfries and Galloway, Lanarkshire, Ayrshire, Arran, and East Lothian, as well as the North of England.

There were cookery demonstrations from some of the region’s top chefs including Iain Gourlay of Cringletie House Hotel, and David Jamieson, East Lothian Food Tourism Ambassador and executive head chef of Archerfield Estate.

The event was designed to build relationships with buyers, introduce them to new products and secure future business.

It was delivered by Regional Food Groups and Regional Food Tourism Ambassador of the South, supported by Scotland Food & Drink.

Fiona Richmond, head of regional food at Scotland Food & Drink, said: “Opportunities such as Showcasing the Larder of the Lowlands give producers the chance to champion their produce and expand into new markets. Seeing the range of food and drink businesses at this event, and the buzz in the room, shows just how much we have to offer across the regions of Scotland.”
