Connect Local - Regional Food Fund
The Connect Local Regional Food Fund (RFF) is a grant to support growth in Scotland’s local / regional food and drink sector. This fund will support initiatives and projects in Scotland which celebrate and promote locally sourced and produced food and drink, in line with the priorities of Ambition 2030. The fund is for collaborative projects where groups of producers and food & drink businesses benefit from these initiatives and projects are expected to deliver benefits over the long-term. The fund will allow for support to food and drink producers, regional groups and networks, including farm retail and local food events where traditionally funding can be hard to find.
