New Coordinator appointed at Food From Fife

Fri 15 Jan 16

Fife's food network, Food from Fife, has appointed Martha Bryce as its new coordinator as its latest networking event is launched.

The part-time position within the not for profit membership organisation has been made possible with funding from Fife Council. The appointment comes at a key time for Food from Fife, as it seeks to develop its membership base with a range of activity in support of its aims to promote and develop the region's food and drink.

The appointment comes as Food from Fife announces a networking event for members and for those interested in joining the organisation. The event is scheduled for the evening of 25 February at Kingsbarns Distillery near St Andrews and is free of charge. The evening will include the opportunity to see round the new distillery, hear more on Scotland's Year of Innovation and meet the team behind Food from Fife. It is open to food and drink businesses, those working in the hospitality industry or those who are simply interested in meeting other businesses in the sector.

Martha Bryce has worked for many years in both the tourism and food and drink sectors. In addition to growing up in her family's food business, Fletchers of Auchtermuchty, she has worked in both international and UK marketing at VisitScotland, before starting her own PR consultancy, which continues to specialise in the food and tourism sectors.

On her appointment, Martha Bryce said: "I'm delighted to be involved in such a dynamic organisation and am looking forward to meeting with the diverse businesses that form the membership of Food from Fife. Fife is home to one of the strongest and most interesting food and drink industries in Scotland and combined with the tourism sector, it plays a powerful role in the identity and economic success of the region."

Chair, John Whitehead OBE said: "I'm looking forward to working with Martha as Food from Fife enters an exciting new phase of development. There's never been a better time to be working in food and drink in Fife and Food from Fife is keen to move forward, developing connections between the food and drink businesses of Fife, and increasing awareness of them in the Kingdom and beyond."

The Fife Food Network is a not for profit company that was established in 2010 to help food and tourism businesses work together better.

The current board membership comprises: John Whitehead of Food & Drink Exporters Association (Chair); Cameron Laird of Cairnie Fruit Farm; Nikki Storrar of Ardross Farm Shop; Tom Mitchell of Puddledub Pork (and Chairman Fife Farmers' Markets); and Will Docker of Balgove Larder.
