Visitors already spend almost £1 billion every year on food and drink; the ambition is to double that value by 2030.

A new national food tourism website and apprenticeship programme is among the measures set out in the plan. Other actions include the expansion of VisitScotland’s Taste our Best quality assurance.

Scotland’s farming union has urged those behind the action plan to double the value of Scottish food tourism by 2030. The industry-led Food Tourism Scotland Action Plan, launched by First Minister Nicola Sturgeon, lays down a range of actions to maximize the potential of two of Scotland’s most successful sectors – tourism and food and drink.
