Fife is home to some of the very best food and drink in Scotland, and next March we will be celebrating and showcasing our wonderful food and drink producers and businesses at the first Fife Food & Drink Week.
For 9 days from 9th to 17th March 2024, we are encouraging businesses, visitors and locals to celebrate all that’s great about food & drink in the Kingdom.
Events during the week will celebrate the stories behind our locally grown and sourced food and drink, showcasing it at restaurants, cafes, bars and unique venues throughout Fife. Businesses are being encouraged to offer exclusive events such as tastings, dinners, and workshops that celebrate the authenticity, regionality and provenance of food and drink from Fife.
Fiona Richmond, Head of Regional Food, Scotland Food & Drink, said, ‘Fife is one of Scotland’s foremost food producing regions and Fife Food & Drink Week is an excellent occasion to celebrate the best produce that the Kingdom has to offer.’
‘Recent research from The Knowledge Bank found that 89% of Scottish consumers are keen to purchase more locally-produced food and drink. We’d love to see the people of Fife really get behind their local producers and support Fife Food & Drink Week.’
Fife Food & Drink Week will give people unique opportunities to get behind the scenes and hear first-hand the stories behind our wonderful food and drink from the people who make it.
Cllr Altany Craik, spokesperson for Finance, Economy & Strategic Planning said, ‘Fife Food & Drink Week is a great opportunity for businesses to reach new and regular customers and offer something a little different. We want to help create a buzz around Fife’s food and drink and get people out and about enjoying it!’
Businesses are encouraged to organise their own events including ticket sales and add a free listing on www.welcometofife.com - the destination website for Fife. Welcome to Fife will then promote events in the run up to, and during the week, through our Fife Food & Drink Week marketing campaign.
