Help put Inverurie on national food map at Feast North East

North-east businesses are being called upon to help put Inverurie on Scotland’s food and drink map by taking part in an innovative event.

Feast North East, a three-month food and drink festival taking place from June to August, will showcase the very best food and drink producers, farmers, independent retailers and eating establishments throughout the region.

Festival organisers are encouraging local businesses to show their support by hosting an event, helping to bring a summer full of events to the area.

Families and visitors can take part in a range of activities, including tasting events, foraging tours, cooking demonstrations and fun days.

And there's a determination to highlight the increasingly eclectic nature of food and drink in the area.

Feast North East will consist of events and activities organised by the local businesses, and will raise awareness of the diverse range of quality food and drink sector in the area.

As of this weekend, businesses including JG Ross Ltd, ANM Group, The Kilted Frog, Gadie’s Restaurant, Loaves and Fishes, All About Lemons, Cones and Candy and Mitchells have confirmed they will be hosting events.

JG Ross Director, Graeme Ross, said: “As Scotland’s Retail Baker of the year, we are delighted to be involved in Feast North East and have organised a number of events to coincide with the festival.

“We are in the process of organising a large event at the end of August to showcase some of the area’s finest producers.

"And we want to try and encourage as many of the local businesses as we can to get involved so we can end the Feast North East festival with a bang.”

Doug Milne, a spokesperson on behalf of Feast North East, and Aberdeenshire Council’s Garioch Area Manager, is one of the driving forces behind the venture.

He said: “The event is proving to be extremely popular with people in the area, and we have had a number of businesses register their festival events over the past week.

"We’re looking to get the backing of even more companies before its official launch in June.

“There is an abundance of local businesses with fantastic food and drink produce on offer, and the festival offers them the perfect platform to showcase them, which will help reach the festival’s aim of increasing footfall in the area.”

Feast North East,supported by Aberdeenshire Council, will officially kick off at Taste of Grampian on Saturday 6 June.
