Welcome to Lochaber Crafts and Food Producers Association
The Association was formed in 1993 to bring together the various individual craft and food producers operating in Lochaber, in order to market and promote our unique wares throughout the area and beyond. One of our main activities has been to produce a printed map and guide to our various businesses, which has been very well received and continues to be produced annually.
Times have changed a great deal in the twenty years since the Association was formed, and we find ourselves operating in a very different environment. We have therefore decided that it is time for a significant shake up, and to “re-launch” the Association in a format yet to be determined, but which is geared towards supporting Lochaber businesses succeed during the next twenty years.
In order to kick-start this change, the present office bearers have decided to step down at the next AGM, in the hope that a new group of individuals will step up to lead the Association forward.
Our AGM will be held in March 2014, at which these changes can be discussed and ratified, and the Association's next chapter can begin to be formulated.
In the mean time, this website has been put on hold - we hope to have a new site functioning from April 2014.
