About the fund

The Regional Food Fund offers grants of up to £5,000 to support projects and initiatives that promote the development of food and drink across Scotland. The funding is aligned to the Food Tourism Scotland Action Plan and is part of the Scotland Food & Drink Partnership’s Recovery Plan, supported by Scottish Government.

The fund is specifically aimed at collaborative projects that:

  • Contribute to the food and drink sector’s recovery from Covid-19
  • Contribute to the promotion and sales of regional produce
  • Develop food tourism
  • Benefit a region or community, not just one business
  • Can be delivered by 31 December 2021

What kind of initiatives will be funded?

We know that the pandemic has forced small-scale regional activities to diversify, innovate and get creative. From online markets to virtual events, there’s still plenty of opportunities to promote regional food and drink.
