Taste of Grampian is held at the Thainstone Centre, Inverurie, headquarters of the ANM Group, one of Scotland’s biggest farmer-owned co-operatives. Our members produce the finest meat grown on the lush natural pastures that play such a key role in the wonderful story behind Grampian’s flourishing food industry.

Thainstone is the perfect setting to tell that story and showcase the uniqueness and diversity of the food produced here in the North-east.

Its focus is on telling consumers about the richness and diversity of the north-east’s food larder. It has become an important event in the annual calendar for Grampian’s food and drink businesses, many of whom now use it as the launch pad for innovative new products.

Aberdeenshire Council recognises the importance of the food and drink industry and its relationships to the traditional industry sectors of farming and fishing to this area and is therefore glad to continue its support of this event.

Belinda Miller, Head of Economic Development


The Press and Journal is the largest-selling quality newspaper in Scotland. The newspaper’s extensive news coverage of Taste of Grampian and its large readership across the entire north and north-east of Scotland has helped ensure attendances continue to grow.

The event is now well-established and is an invaluable marketing tool for the many producers of superb quality food in the Grampian region.
