Promoting Responsible Community Retailing by Lobbying, Communication, Networking and Advice.

Ensuring a sustainable and prosperous convenience industry in Scotland


SGF is backing the Scottish Government's new Eat in Season campaign.

Scotland’s farmers and growers produce a huge variety of top quality foods throughout the year and it’s important to eat them at the right time to enjoy them at their absolute tastiest and best. That’s why people across the country are being encouraged to make the most of the abundant larder on our doorstep by eating in season foods. Bursting with flavour and goodness, local, in season foods have a high nutritional content and are easily accessible, which can even make them a cheaper option. By choosing local, in season food, we can help reduce our food supply chain and make Scotland a cleaner and greener place.

Cooking and eating in season food is simple to do at home, visit the Greener Scotland website by clicking on the logo below, for hundreds of quick and easy recipes using in season foods from across Scotland.
