Media enquiries

FDF Scotland is available to help journalists with any questions they might have relating to the Scottish food and drink manufacturing industry.

If we're unable to help directly, we can usually point you in the direction of someone who can!

We issue statements on behalf of the industry and our in-house policy experts can supply quotes, statistics, case studies and other background information on a wide range of industry issues.

For media enquiries please contact Kirsty Tinsdale on 0131 222 8040 or email 

Public affairs activities

The FDF champions UK food and drink manufacturing to politicians, policymakers and stakeholders across the UK and in Brussels.

We hold regular meetings and events to update politicians on the issues facing the UK's largest manufacturing sector. 

In Scotland we provide briefings for debates, give evidence to Scottish Parliamentary Committees and respond to consultations on issues that are important to our members.
