Due to changes made to the official Scottish Parliament website at the start of 2011, our parser that used to fetch their web pages and convert them into more structured information has stopped working. We’re afraid we cannot give a timescale as to when we will be able to cover the Scottish Parliament again. Sorry for any inconvenience caused.

The Food Processing, Marketing and Co-operation and European Fisheries Fund grant schemes are available to assist the agriculture and fishery sectors meet and contribute to overall Government policies, including those relating to health and nutrition, as set out in "Recipe For Success", Scotland’s first Food and Drink Policy.
A number of other initiatives are being assisted that have health/diet elements. Examples include support to Seafood Scotland to promote the health benefits of eating seafood; grant assistance to the Royal Highland Education Trust for their "Farm to Plate" scheme and other projects; funding for the "Childrens’ Orchard" to plant apple trees in schools; and assistance to Eco-Schools to develop a food and environment theme for use in schools.
