The new directory - aimed at boosting trade for local businesses and encouraging inward tourism – can be viewed online.

Councillor Adam Montgomery, Provost of Midlothian Council (pictured right), formally launched the directory at the National Mining Museum Scotland to an audience representative of many of the local suppliers and providers listed within it.

Following the launch, food and drink producers, suppliers, restaurant and tourism providers discussed ideas for future food and drink initiatives in Midlothian - including joint working opportunities and collaborative marketing.

A copy of the directory can be viewed online at the Visit Midlothian website:

This project is part-financed by the Scottish Government, Midlothian Council and the European Community Tyne Esk Leader 2007-2013 Programme.

The new Midlothian Food and Drink Directory is one of a series of tourism-related business initiatives contained in the updated Midlothian Tourism Action Plan.
