The Royal Highland Show

This fruit and vegetable strategy reception, hosted by MSP Fergus Ewing will be an opportuntiy to hear more about the exciting future plans for the fruit and veg sector in Scotland.

Back in March, the Scotland Food & Drink Partnership launched Ambition 2030, a bold, industry-led strategy with the vision to double turnover in the sector to £30 billion by 2030. But what does Ambition 2030 mean for potatoes, fruit and vegetables?

We need to fully understand the challenges and opportunities for our fruit and vegetable sector as it faces a unique set of challenges in the coming years. From seasonal workers to overcoming supply chain challenges in order to get products to market, from embracing innovation in new varieties or pest management to supporting the ambition of Scotland becoming a Good Food Nation.  This event will be a unique opportunity to discuss the next steps for potatoes, fruit and vegetables to 2030.
