The fortnight began on the 2nd September and will conclude on 17th and asks the Scottish public to think about one change they can make in their purchasing habits that will support local producers.

This is an annual event that celebrates Scotland’s outstanding produce and is managed by industry leadership body, Scotland Food and Drink.

Since the beginning of the fortnight, Mr Crawford has met with Katy Rodger’s Artisan Dairy in Knockraich Farm, Fintry, supporting the many dairy products sourced and produced locally.

Commenting, MSP Bruce Crawford said:

“Switching just one thing in your daily routine that will support locally produced food and drink will make all the difference to the local industry.

 “Local businesses, such as Katy Rodger’s, are a source of high-quality food and drink products and it is crucial that we support this sector.

 “That’s why I have switched from my normal routine and have committed to consuming locally sourced dairy products in future – starting with Scottish Food and Drink Fortnight – and would urge people across the Stirling Constituency to consider what they can change to support local producers.”
