Highlands and Islands Regional Food Groups Conference

We’re inviting regional food group members, boards, managers, and stakeholders from across the Highlands and Islands to join us online for the first-ever Regional Food Groups Conference.

Over the last few years, food and drink businesses, such as producers, hospitality and tourism businesses and independent retailers have greatly benefitted from membership and the collaborative efforts of our regional food groups.

From Shetland Food & Drink in the North to Food from Argyll in the South, these networks all work in their own unique way, but share a collective ambition to grow the sector, and put local food and drink on the map.

For the first time, we’re bringing our regional food groups, their members, and stakeholders together to share experience, best practice and inspire people to make connections and seize new opportunities.

Through discussion with regional food groups and the national industry leadership body, Scotland Food & Drink, the conference will offer engaging and relevant insights to attendees in areas such as:

  • Food and Drink Tourism
  • Net zero
  • Funding
  • Collaboration
  • Attracting and retaining staff

Joining us on the day will be a broad range of domestic and international industry speakers and subject matter experts, who will help us deliver a jam-packed programme of interactive panel sessions and informal networking.

Delegates will also be able to connect and engage with like-minded businesses throughout the conference on our interactive event platform, Socio.
