Food and Drink Federation (FDF) Scotland is the membership body for food and drink manufacturers and is a division of the FDF. We represent and support hundreds of food and drink companies across the UK, from thriving small businesses through to major global brands.

We make sure our members' views and concerns are heard by the Scottish Government, the UK Government, other policy makers, politicians, consumers and the media. One of the ways we do that is by responding to a wide range of consultations on issues that are important to our members. View FDF Scotland’s consultation responses
