Food & Drink

Fife’s Food & Drink Sector Has The Key Ingredients

Fife has a strong reputation as a thriving food and drink sector.

With its 177 miles of coastline and over 50 farms, the region is home to an eclectic mix of award-winning food and drink producers from small artisan producers to large-scale manufacturers such as Diageo, MOWi, Quakers Oats, Carr’s Flour Mill, BPlasticFree, The Wee Tea Company and Tayport Distillery.

Whilst Fife proudly produces great food and drink, it is also supported by a superb distribution chain of food and drink establishments. You will see products being sold across Fife’s farm shops, vibrant food and drink festivals, its fine restaurants and top-notch cafes. This is in addition to the distribution across the UK and beyond, thanks to its close proximity to the road network, rail, sea and air.

“We have been enjoying the integrated support not only from Fife Council and Business Gateway Fife, but from the business network in Fife, in particular the Chamber of Commerce. Our new location in Glenrothes is equidistant both from both coasts of the East Neuk and has great communication links.”

Fiona Houston, CEO at Mara Seaweed

“InvestFife has been extremely proactive and encouraging in supporting Bella & Duke’s move to Inverkeithing. They have introduced us to key partners and made the challenging task of consolidating a number of facilities, that bit easier.”

Mark Scott, Director of Bella & Duke

“Invest Fife are exceptionally approachable and supportive to our team. From the beginning, they have shown a real understating of our immediate needs as well as long term business needs and are pro-active in identifying future opportunities for Growers Garden.”

Alan Wallace, Commercial Manager

Fife has a rich and demonstrated heritage of producing top-quality food and drink that are enjoyed nationally and indeed, globally.

Generations of producers of cereals, vegetables, livestock, soft fruit and seafood have provided an excellent base for Fife’s food and drink sector to innovate, evolve and grow. Fife is currently home to many businesses, from cheesemakers to the Buffalo farm, from whisky and gin distillers to salt and seaweed manufacturing companies. There are tea makers, chocolate connoisseurs and preserve, vinegars and condiment producers – you name it, and it’s likely made in Fife!

The region also promotes a resilient market-driven supply chain. Its friendly approach sees producers predominately working together on projects to add value and encourage growth to the sector, while local colleges and universities encourage talent.

Fife continues to cook up a storm as its food and drink sector grows, develops, evolves, innovates and thrives.
