Many local residents already know that Midlothian boasts a fantastic range of top-quality locally-based food and drink producers.
Now our economic development team have taken that message directly to the tens of thousands of visitors from around the globe who flock to Edinburgh at this time of year.
The team helped organise a Midlothian Food and Drink Exhibition at this year's ever-popular Foodies Festival which took place at Inverleith Park over the weekend. Midlothian's stand celebrated the excellence of food and drink producers and providers from across the county.
The stand showcased four local businesses in particular - Supernature (Gorebridge) with their selection of infused cold pressed rapeseed oils, Magic T Pot (Gorebridge) with their hand-blended organic teas, Creme de la Cupake's (Bonnyrigg) selection of bespoke cupcake flavours, and Mo-Bo-Jo's (Roslin) selling their ultimate chocolate brownies.
This project is being part-financed by the Scottish Government, Midlothian Council and the European Community Tyne Esk Leader 2007-2013 Programme.
