Scottish Food Charter

29 Nov

Thought you might be interested in this news which was sent through from Scotland.

 The 2014 Food & Drink Team is delighted to be working closely with Glasgow 2014 in the development of a Food Charter.

 This Charter will set the standards across the main product categories and the appointed caterers will work to these. What this means is that caterers will be expected to look to Scottish food & drink producers first, and to those meeting specified quality criteria. So for the 60 tonnes of potatoes; over 10 tonnes of seafood; 25,000 litres of milk and 100,000 loaves of bread, to name but a few, the caterers will be looking to our native producers first.  Our aim is that this Charter will be adopted by the Ryder Cup and key Homecoming events and, crucially, become a legacy document for the country to influence high quality Scottish sourcing way beyond 2014.

The Food Charter launched on the 29th of November 2013.

I guess I can only hope that Wales will soon follow Scotland’s lead and give the same support to our Welsh food and drink producers.
