The Scottish Government is to invest more than £7.3m on food and drink businesses to help them increase production, expand storage facilities and purchase new equipment.

A total of 29 businesses are set to receive grants ranging from £1,047 to £1.4m from the Food Processing, Marketing and Cooperation grant scheme.

Projects include new processing equipment to increase production of healthier, low calorie dairy products, upgraded vegetable processing facilities and expanded storage capacity.

“This funding will play an important role in helping producers continue to deliver high-quality, innovative and nutritious products that will be enjoyed at home and abroad – securing and creating jobs in our rural communities and boosting the economy,” Rural Affairs Secretary Mairi Gougeon said.
