Scottish food and drink ‘Oscars’ open for entry
Businesses are being urged to enter this year’s Scottish Food & Drink ‘Oscars’, which has been officially opened by broadcaster Kaye Adams.
Adams will also host the ceremony, which will recognise excellence in the industry and “represent Scotland on a plate”. It will take place at the National Museum of Scotland in Edinburgh on 27 May.
She said: “I’m thrilled to be invited back to host this delightfully delicious event. 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.”
The Scotland Food & Drink Excellence Awards, organised by Scotland Food & Drink in partnership with The Royal Highland and Agricultural Society of Scotland (RHASS), will be bigger than ever before, with 700 guests attending the ceremony. Food and drink companies can enter 19 different categories, which cover both product quality and business success.
Chief executive of Scotland Food & Drink, James Withers, said: “The Excellence Awards recognise the very best that Scotland’s food and drink industry has to offer. From the big players to small artisan producers, the awards recognise our best products and businesses. 2015 is the Year of Food and Drink, which means that recognising excellence in our field is even more important and the awards are still bigger as a consequence.
“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. I would encourage companies of all sizes to enter this year’s awards.”
