SGF is delighted to announce that the Scottish government has renewed the retailer food to go grant programme and increased the total funding available to £300,000. The programme will be administered by Scottish Grocers’ Federation.
The grant programme aims to support and encourage the capacity of independent convenience store retailers in Scotland to innovate and respond to changing customer demands through the development of a food-to-go offering. Grants will be awarded on match funding basis for the installation of a food to go station. The award criteria encourages retailers to focus on locally sourced products, healthy eating options and managing waste. Applications can be submitted with effect from 30th April 2019.
