SCOTMID has joined forces with Scotland Food & Drink to launch a new competition promoting local produce.

Food and drink suppliers across Scotland are being offered the chance to win one of five promotional listings across Scotmid’s store estate.

Applications for the local favourites competition are now open and brands have until 4 October to submit their entry. The winning five products will be rewarded with a three-week listing in 2022.

Kirsty George, local sourcing manager at Scotmid, said: “At Scotmid, we are committed to supporting Scottish suppliers and developing long and lasting relationships with them. Our customers are very receptive to new Scottish products so it’s great to be working with Scotland Food & Drink to bring this opportunity to local producers.”

Helen Wallace, UK market development manager at Scotland Food & Drink, said: “Scotmid has demonstrated a solid commitment to supporting Scottish suppliers over the years and this competition is a brilliant representation of the importance of delivering and nurturing those relationships.

“Access to retail for new and evolving products is critical for the growth of the sector and initiatives like this are important to allow a foot in the door for smaller producers.”
