The registration page for our inaugural food and drink conference – “Rich Pickings: Harvesting Scotland’s potential in the food and drink industry” – is now open!

This free conference will be held on Friday 15 November at Perth Racecourse and will allow delegates to network and discuss the issues that matter most in the food and drink sector.

We are delighted to welcome Christine Tacon CBE – the UK’s first Grocery Code Adjudicator – as keynote speaker alongside a wide range of industry experts.

There will also be a range of seminars to choose from throughout the day on hot topics ranging from growing your business and brand protection to waste renewal and the current issues in agriculture.

With the Scottish Government announcing 2015 as the Year of Scotland’s Food and Drink, we hope the event will encourage fresh ideas and open delegates’ minds to new opportunities ahead.
