Regional Food Tourism Ambassadors

Mon 22 Mar 21

Could you help to lead and inspire our local food tourism growth? And raise our profile as a food tourism destination?

Scotland Food & Drink are looking for ambassadors across Scotland and this could be you.

If you’re interested in growing food tourism in Scotland, 2021 brings an amazing opportunity to make a difference.

Scotland Food & Drink are looking for around 25 people across Scotland to promote and champion our food tourism sector and experiences. The programme is part of the Food Tourism Scotland action plan developed by Scotland Food & Drink and the Scottish Tourism Alliance.

Why be an Ambassador?

Because opportunities like this don’t come along very often.

  • You’ll contribute to Scotland’s economic future, helping the food, hospitality and tourism sectors rebuild from the pandemic.
  • You’ll help your own region recover and thrive, shaping sustainable food tourism experiences that work for your own local community.
  • You’ll work with other ambassadors, be the ‘face’ of campaigns or events, meet amazing businesses and people, and give back to others. It's a chance to shine.


Who are they looking for?

You could be a food producer, retailer, blogger, event organiser, accommodation provider, educator, chef, restauranteur or something else.

More important than your profession or qualifications is that you are immersed in the food, tourism or hospitality sectors, and embedded in your local community.


It’s not a full-time commitment, but we want people who care – and can make other people care too. Who can:

  • lead by example and mentor others
  • not only come up with great ideas, but help bring them to life
  • promote career prospects in food tourism
