RHASS has today confirmed that its food & drink event, Eat Drink Discover Scotland (EDDS), will not return as planned in September 2015.
The two-day event, billed as giving visitors the opportunity to ‘taste Scotland in one day', has been put on hold while the Society, which hosted Scotland's Larder Live! as part of this year's record-breaking Royal Highland Show, considers a new format for the exhibition.
Commenting on the decision, Stephen Hutt said: "Despite our best efforts evidence suggests there simply isn't an appetite for Eat Drink Discover Scotland in its current format. This is not to say that there isn't a need for such an event - we believe there is - and our team is working to decide how best to move forward and create a food festival on par with Scotland's Larder Live!."
