February Bulletin

A new monthly bite sized round up of opportunities, news and info: 

Containers for Sale

One of our local food and drink producers has some 20' containers for sale and some 30' lorry insulated bodies. The containers are as new and in excellent condition, £2200 plus VAT, and the insulated lorry bodies not so pretty but in good working condition, £1000 plus VAT. Contact me on lorna@dgfoodanddrink.org if you would like photos and the details of the seller.

South West Catering

If you need catering or refrigeration equipment maintained or repairs, Stranraer based South West Catering www.southwestscotlandcatering.co.uk cover south west Scotland. 


Hospitality Vacancies

Quite a few job vacancies for experienced kitchen staff have cropped up over the past month.  If you are looking for a position contact me and I'll send you details.  If your hospitality business is having recruitment issues can you also drop me a line?  It would be useful from a planning / training point of view to know of any problems local hospitality businesses are having in filling vacancies.


New Outlets Needed

I have a few food producers looking for new outlets.  If you would like to hear from local producers with a view to stocking or using more local produce please let me know and I'll circulate details.
