This scheme can provide support grant to suppliers and producers to contribute to the Scottish Government's overall vision for food and drink in Scotland, which is to be a Good Food Nation, where it is second nature to produce, buy, serve and eat fresh, healthy food.

Funding can help you:

Capital Projects:

  • develop or create food processing facilities, including buildings and equipment

Non-Capital Projects:

  • market your products in home and export markets at national/international trade shows/fairs
  • to run co-operative ventures to make sure more value is retained by both farmers and growers
  • to improve supply-chain efficiency

The FPMC scheme is part of the Scottish Rural Development Programme.

The further application round will close to applications on 10 November 2019. Applications must be received by this date. No late applications will be accepted.

Applicants will be notified of the outcome of their application in mid to end February 2020.
