Our round up of the latest news and information affecting livelihoods and businesses on Skye.
Scotland Food & Drink Fortnight
Scotland’s food and drink landscape may have shifted since the beginning of the year but our ambitions remain, proud of the outstanding products being reared, grown and manufactured on our doorstep.
The industry is alive with passionate and talented people, long-established brands and young, innovative businesses who have adapted quickly, taking the challenge in their stride. They are at the heart of why Scotland’s reputation for food and drink remains unmatched and why our appetite for buying Scottish remains unequalled. Now, more than ever, we’re seeing a real and tangible pride in our food and drink.
Scottish Food & Drink Fortnight is an annual celebration of the best Scotland’s food and drink sector has to offer, from every corner of the country.
