Scotland Food & Drink Business Academy


The Academy was conceived to help Scottish food and drink producers develop the skills necessary for Scotland to double its food and drink output to £30 billion by 2030. The contract to deliver the Academy was put out to public tender in 2020 and Levercliff were successful.


We provide commercial skills training. What makes us unique from traditional training providers is our ‘dirt under the fingernails’ approach. We deliver theory and practical solutions via workshops and one-to-one input from professionals active in the industry every day.


Scotland Food & Drink Business Academy is now live. More than 60 companies have participated in our courses so far.


In the course of my 25 year career in food and drink, I have been fortunate to go on several negotiation workshops with leading providers. Without a shadow of a doubt, the negotiation workshop delivered by Levercliff and Steve Jones during the Commercial Excellence programme was by far the best.
