Welcome to A4A

Appetite for Angus is a network of food and drink businesses who are working together to promote what the area has to offer, to ensure everyone has access to local food, and to collaborate, supporting and helping each other.

The group covers all parts of the food chain – farmers, primary producers, wholesalers, retailers, café owners, restaurateurs, and professional services. We all have one thing in common – a passion for good, local food which we want to share with everyone.

Angus is home to some of the most wonderful food and drink in the land. Arbroath Smokies, Aberdeen Angus Beef and Forfar Bridies are iconic and famous across the world, but Angus is also home to innovative companies producing everything from jam to gin.

Anyone can join the network so if you are based in Angus and involved in food and drink in any way, please get in touch.

We hope you enjoy finding out about our amazing producers, and the stories behind the products.

We aim to make it as easy as possible for you to shop local and enjoy everything the area has to offer! #appetite4angus
