£250k Connect Local Regional Food Fund for Scotland

Published: 26 November 2018 by KTN
£250k Connect Local Regional Food Fund for Scotland’s Food & Drink Sector - First 2019 Round Open The Connect Local Regional Food Fund (RFF) has been set up to support initiatives and projects in Scotland which celebrate and promote locally-sourced and produced food and drink. The Fund is intended for collaborative projects where groups of producers and food & drink businesses can benefit. Support will be offered to producers, regional groups and networks, including farm retail and local food events, where funding has traditionally been hard to find. In particular it is hoped that the funding will help new support initiatives in their early stages but which will deliver benefits over the long-term. A total of £250,000 is available. This is a competitive programme and applicants can apply for grants up to a maximum of £5,000. Examples of areas of potential support could include:    - Promoting or developing regional groups and their initiatives to showcase local food and drink, and food tourism.    - Promoting Scottish provenance and sales at a local and national (Scotland) level.    - Developing local food and drink events to celebrate and promote food and drink and its provenance. The Fund is open to individual businesses in the food and drink sector, including primary producers, regional and community groups (both rural and urban) and individuals. Activities need to be based in Scotland, and all applications should promote Scottish local produce in line with the aspirations of Ambition 2030. Applications can be submitted at any time, but the application process closes on the submission deadline. The submission deadline for the first 2019 panel is Friday 1 March 2019.
