Spot­light on food and drink

Evening Telegraph (Late Extra Edition) - - PUZZLES -

FIFE’S food and drink pro­duc­ers have been pitch­ing their prod­ucts to in­ter­na­tional buy­ers dur­ing a gas­tro­nomic tour of the king­dom.

As part of Show­cas­ing Scot­land, buy­ers vis­ited Fife to sam­ple qual­ity prod­ucts and find out their ori­gins.

Labour coun­cil­lor Al­tany Craik, con­vener of the econ­omy, tourism, strate­gic plan­ning and trans­porta­tion com­mit­tee, said: “We are de­lighted to be show­cas­ing some of our out­stand­ing food and drink busi­nesses from across Fife. Trad­ing out­side of Scot­land and over­seas can open up a mass of op­por­tu­ni­ties.

“Show­cas­ing Scot­land is shin­ing a spot­light on Fife and this is a great op­por­tu­nity for some of our most in­no­va­tive, es­tab­lished and emerg­ing f o od and dr i n k man­u­fac­tur­ers.”

Mr Craik said food and drink was a key sec­tor, par­tic­u­larly in north-east Fife, and that Fife Coun­cil would have an ac­tion plan to sup­port busi­nesses and drive for­ward in­no­va­tion by the start of next year.
