2015 is Scotland’s Year of Food And Drink. The Government-led initiative has been created by Event Scotland and Visit Scotland, and will spotlight, celebrate and promote Scotland’s natural larder and quality produce to our people and our visitors.

Throughout the year, DGFirst will be celebrating the best of Scottish produce. It’s an opportunity to show off what is so good about the food and drink in our local area as well as from all over Scotland, and it ties in very nicely with the idea behind our own Naturally D&G brand.

These are just some of the events we will be getting involved in throughout the year. Keep watching this page for details on each month’s promotion.
