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

Entries for the awards close on February 27.

Tickets for the awards ceremony and dinner are now on sale available from Scotland Food & Drink.
