Collaboration Prize – pair up to pitch big

Collaborating with other businesses can help food and drink businesses access new markets, share resources and gain strength in numbers.

Co-operative Development Scotland's Collaboration Prize aims to encourage companies to work together and will this year be making £40,000 available for new collaborative projects.

Open to all Scotland-based companies with a collaborative idea, the competition welcomes proposals around:

  • Collaboration to gain scale in selling/buying
  • Collaboration to share resources, premises or equipment
  • Collaboration to enter new markets

This year the focus is on key sectors of the Scottish economy, which includes food and drink.

A total of four winners will be chosen by a judging panel and will receive £5,000 cash to implement their idea as well as up to £5,000 of consultancy and additional support to set up the consortium.

The deadline for applications is Saturday 3 August, and workshops will be held through June and July for businesses to find out more.

The competition will be delivered in association with Creative Scotland, Scotland Food & Drink and the Scottish Tourism Alliance.
