Scotland’s 2015 Excellence Awards open for entry
Scotland Food & Drink opened its annual Excellence Awards for entry this week with the help of TV presenter Kaye Adams.
The Scotland Food & Drink Excellence Awards will feature 19 categories, nine of which are product-related, with the winners announced at a ceremony at the National Museum of Scotland in Edinburgh presented by Adams on May 27.
Organised by Scotland Food & Drink in partnership with The Royal Highland and Agricultural Society of Scotland (RHASS), the awards also have a number of business categories, including Environmental Sustainability, Scottish Sourcing and Investing in People in addition to an award recognising Young Talent.
“This is a real celebration of Scotland’s food and drink in all its different guises from producers with an international recognition to micro businesses,” said Adams. “The Excellence Awards represent Scotland on a plate and I’d urge food and drink businesses to get involved.”
Scotland Food & Drink chief executive James Withers said these awards would have extra significance because 2015 has been designated as the Year of Food & Drink in the country.
“This year, more than ever before, Scotland will be recognised as a Land of Food and Drink and the awards provide a fantastic platform to celebrate the outstanding achievements across our industry,” he added.
Food and drink businesses from across Scotland can enter online at www.scotlandfoodanddrink.org/events/excellence-awards
Entries for the awards close on February 27.
Tickets for the awards ceremony and dinner are now on sale available from Scotland Food & Drink.
