Trend setting dining excellence
Glasgow is viewed as a trend-setter in European Culture welcoming 2.3 million visitors each year and in 2014, the world’s top travel guides consistently named Glasgow as a must-visit destination; highlighting the city’s warmth, style and energy.
A centre of dining excellence to such an extent that It is now widely acknowledged that Glasgow has the best dining scene in the UK outside of London. The largest city in Scotland certainly provides a dynamic reality of Scotland with Style.
Glasgow has the metropolitan feel of a major international city but still retains the village community where local businesses know each other very much acknowledging the city strapline that People Make Glasgow.
The restaurateurs in our city all understand that local spirit is a vital factor in presenting a town that is ‘together’. Sharing experiences and knowledge is a culture in Glasgow, which allows us to progress at a pace which many spectators observe with envy.
It was this spirit of co-operation and progressive thinking which led to the formation of Glasgow Restaurant Association, a not for profit organisation, which has grown over several years from a small number of restaurants to over eighty of the best Glasgow restaurants. The Association has uniquely allowed a group of widely diverse professionals to exchange ideas with one common aim - to promote the excellence of the Glasgow restaurant landscape on a local, national and international level.

Glasgow Restaurant Association Supports Resource Efficiency Project
Dear GRA members,
The GRA has received funding to carry out a four month resource efficiency project. The project is in two distinct parts and will include:
the appointment of a new waste and recycling service provider
actions to cut costs for members through resource efficiency measures, particularly the reduction of supplier packaging waste.
Tim Reid and Polly Griffiths have been seconded into the GRA to complete the work and will be contacting GRA members between now and the 18th of December to gather brief baseline information on suppliers and resource efficiency opportunities.
Please support the project and help them when they get in touch; this is a great opportunity to share best practice amongst members and identify ways for all members to save money.
More details are given in the document HERE for anyone interested and the GRA will be keeping members up to date with the project though Facebook and Twitter.
If you would like to find out more, or if you are interested in being more closely involved, contact Tim and Polly (firstname.lastname@example.org, 07969 722157 / email@example.com, 07738 366249) or contact us on Twitter @GDA_online using the hashtag #GRAresources.
