Scotland Food & Drink’s new strategy was launched at the Royal Highland Show by First Minister Humza Yousaf. New 10-year ‘stability strategy’ will be backed by an initial £5m investment from the Scottish Government. Humza Yousaf has called on the food industry to work together as he launched a 10-year stability strategy for the sector. It aims to provide a 25% increase in turnover for the food and drink sector by 2028. Yousaf said the strategy is “so necessary” as the launch marked seven years since the UK voted to leave the EU.
Within Tay Cities Clean Growth, there is great emphasis on agriculture, food security via The James Hutton Institute and crop innovation, technology and digital as well as skills. It recognises the strength in working together noting Scotland’s secret ingredient as collaboration. This is what TCCG is all about.
