About Us

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Experience Glasgow set out to formally establish a Regional Food Group for the city through Scotland Food & Drink and coordinate a simplified action plan that makes it easier for Glasgow’s sector to respond to Glasgow City Food Plan and Food Tourism Scotland 2030.

In a nutshell

We aim to:
  • Bridge the gap between suppliers and buyers – providing opportunities to collaborate, share and do business;
  • Raise the profile of the sector, including local producers/growers/manufacturers and hospitality businesses;
  • Provide the support you need to grow your customer base through the development of authentic bookable food and drink experiences for locals and visitors;
  • Help you to operate more sustainably and profitably;
  • Add value – by identifying opportunities to reduce waste, energy and increase the profitability of your business.
Our National Priorities:
  • Develop regional events to help bring local buyers and suppliers together;
  • Build a collection of compelling food and drink stories that inspire tourism
  • Develop innovative multi-regional and cross-industry bookable food tourism experiences;
  • Host an annual forum for stakeholders in food tourism industry to celebrate success and foster collaboration.
Our Regional Priorities
  • Create opportunities for new food, drink and hospitality businesses in the city and provide linkages with and between other Regional Food Groups;
  • Support grassroots food and drink organisations, including actions arising from the Glasgow City Food Plan;
  • Support and promote the Circular Economy agenda led by Glasgow Chamber of Commerce;
  • Enable and support businesses to collaborate or to trade with one another to unlock the growth potential of food tourism.
