Meet the Buyers 2017

Small companies operating in the food and drink sector along the Borders Railway corridor showcased the best of the area’s cuisine to more than 100 buyers at The Balmoral - a Rocco Forte Hotel - in Edinburgh on Tuesday 13 June.

The event was a part of a new campaign, ‘Borders Rail More Connected’ to promote opportunities for businesses, investment and employment in the railway catchment area.

It was funded by the Borders Railway Blueprint Inward Investment Group and was supported by the local food and drink advisory service, Connect Local and Scotland Food & Drink.

It brought together for the first time suppliers based in the Scottish Borders, Midlothian and Edinburgh to showcase their produce to retailers, hoteliers and restaurateurs committed to using local produce.
