Scotland Food & Drink Conference
We went along to the Scotland Food & Drink Gastronomy Economy AGM & Conference last week. It was a great event; we saw plenty of familiar faces and met plenty of new ones too!
There were so many useful insights into the industry, a particular highlight was the Buyers Panel Discussion that tackled some of the issues that small businesses face and those that larger corporations deal with too. The panel featured Simon Galkoff, Group Procurement Director at Casual Dining Group; Graham Box, Managing Director at Sodexo; Tom Lewis, Chef-Proprietor at Monachyle Mhor and Martin Street, Strategic Sourcing Director from NHS Scotland.
Above all, through this panel and the rest of the conference, it was the positivity that was so encouraging. There was such a varied and rich discussion about the food and drink industry in Scotland, the community we have and how much we have to offer.
