Scotland’s Speciality Food Show postponed

Scotland’s Speciality Food Show has been postponed until 27th-29th March 2022 due to new Covid-19 restrictions for events in Scotland.

Originally due to be held later this month, the decision to move the event will come as a disappointment to producers and retailers, but is the “sensible and safe route to take”, the organisers said. As of 26th December, Scotland introduced limits on the size of live public events to 100 standing or 200 seated indoors.

“Although new restrictions are, at this stage, only in place until 16th January, we have no way of knowing if they will end then,” said Mark Saunders, Scotland’s Speciality Food Show director. “As Q1 buying patterns are going to be uncertain, we feel a postponement would be helpful to the trade not least in providing a better trading environment but also a much safer one giving buyers confidence to attend.”

The event will be held at Glasgow’s SEC and will feature a wide range of exhibitors showcasing the best food and drink from Scotland and beyond. The organisers have found exhibitors to be supportive of the new dates and expect the majority to participate as usual.
