The Health and Education Team have developed an interactive educational resource called Farming Foodsteps which explores the journey Scottish red meat takes from farm to fork.

The QMS School Meat Voucher Scheme is an industry initiative to help combat the obesity epidemic sweeping Scotland by helping teach secondary age children how to cook quality, nutritious meals by providing home economics departments of secondary schools in Scotland with a voucher worth up to £180.  This is to spend on Scotch Beef PGI, Scotch Lamb PGI and Specially Selected Pork from a local butcher shop and for use by students in home economics and hospitality courses only. The 2021-22 QMS Meat Voucher Scheme is now closed and will reopen in the 2022-23 academic year.


Quality Meat Scotland are delighted to offer Scottish Community cooking groups assistance in purchasing red meat to use as part of cooking classes. This will be by means of a £50 voucher. Vouchers are eligible to be redeemed at Scotch Butchers Club members for the purchase of Scotch Beef, Scotch Lamb or Specially Selected Pork.

Scottish Community Cooking Groups can apply here.



We all understand the importance of a healthy balanced diet and why Scottish schools have such a key role to play. QMS is keen to support educators in discussing areas such as healthy eating, food and farming, hospitality and other areas of the curriculum.

Our education sessions and cookery demonstrations can contribute to experiences and outcomes in more than one area of the Curriculum for Excellence.

If you are interested in a session, please apply here!

*Applications are closed at present due to restrictions. We will notify teachers via the newsletter once applications reopen.

You can sign up for the newsletter on the Teacher's Page of Farming Foodsteps.
