Dundee has a population of approximately 150,000 people. It is located on the banks of the River Tay and around 70% of Scotland’s fresh produce is grown within a 30-mile radius of Dundee.
Eat and Drink Dundee is hosted by Transition Dundee - a community-led social enterprise which aims to make Dundee a more sustainable, healthier and happier place to live through various climate focussed projects.
Eat and Drink Dundee’s aim is to help individuals and organisations work together to promote good, local food and drink for all in Dundee. We aim to bring together partners, stakeholders and interested parties from across the city that are integral to the city’s food landscape.
The project was established during covid to help encourage and facilitate food and drink collaboration and partnership working within the city of Dundee – and with national agencies and organisations operating in neighbouring rural Perthshire, Angus and Fife.
The project is jointly funded by UK Sustainable Food Places and Scotland Food and Drink’s Regional Food Group funding.
The Eat and Drink Dundee Co-ordinator reports to the Board of Transition Dundee.
The co-ordinator liaises with local public and private sector organisations and provides regular updates to the funding partners.
