Last updated: 4.16pm, Monday 31st March 2014
We are absolutely delighted to announce that we have been shortlisted for not one, not two, but THREE accolades in the 2014 Scotland Food & Drink Excellence Awards!
We were among more than one hundred businesses that entered the 18 award categories, recognising excellence across Scottish food and drink.
Our Ridge Cut crisps range has been recognised in the Confectionery & Snacking category and we have also been shortlisted for Brand Success of the Year and Export Business of the Year. The Brand Success award recognises business that have demonstrated the most creative and innovative approach to their products or brand development and the most effective and robust marketing campaign. The Export accolade will be presented to the company whose strategy reflects that export business is not only about exporting but also strategic alliances, joint ventures and vision.
The Scotland Food & Drink Excellence Awards promise to be the food-loversâ€™ event of the year and will take place on 22nd May. The Scottish television presenter, Kaye Adams, will host the event at the Edinburgh International Conference Centre in Edinburgh. Dubbed the Scottish food and drink â€˜Oscarsâ€™, the ceremony sold out in record time and will be bigger than ever before with 700 guests attending on the night. Attendees will be treated to a drinks reception and sumptuous dinner, showcasing the very best of Scotlandâ€™s larder.
The awards are organised by Scotland Food & Drink in partnership with The Royal Highland and Agricultural Society of Scotland (RHASS). The eventâ€™s headline sponsor is Asda and the awards are supported by Think Local.
