Grant funding to boost sales of local food and drink products

Support provided by Scottish Government

What does this involve?

Convenience retailers in Scotland can apply to the Scottish Grocers Federation Go Local funding programme to help maximise the range of Scottish products they offer to customers.

This Scottish Government-supported fund helps retailers create long-term, dedicated display space in their stores for locally sourced Scottish products.

Participating in the Go Local programme gives you access to the Scottish Grocers Federation and Scotland Food and Drink teams, to help develop your store's local proposition. It also allows you to play a crucial role in the recovery and regrowth of Scotland’s food and drink industry by providing new routes to market for producers.


Am I eligible?

Yes, if you are a single-store operator or multi-site convenience retailer in Scotland. Multi-site operators will be limited to one application per company.

What does this cost?

The fund is free to apply for and free support is provided. Funding of up to £5,500 is available on a match-funding basis.

Who is this for?

Convenience retailers in Scotland.

How long does this take?

The deadline to apply is 31 August 2021. Applications will be assessed after the closing date.
