Scotland Food & Drink Excellence Awards 2012
Wed, 30 May 2012
Lanarkshire-based Border Biscuits was the big winner at the recent Scotland Food & Drink Excellence Awards, after it scooped the coveted Business of the Year title.
From top dairy and fish products to fruit juice, quality restaurants, and business leaders in marketing and research, these awards celebrate the diversity of Scotland’s innovation in the foodie world.
Another big winner was Katy Rodger’s Knockraich Farm in Fintry, which won in both the Product of the Year and best Dairy Product category for her range of probiotic yoghurts. The yoghurts are made from the milk of the farm’s herd of British Friesians.
If you head to the small island of Easdale, just off Oban, you will find another award-winner. The Puffer Restaurant and Bar won the Food and Drink Tourism category due to its spectacular island location and its locally sourced produce.
As well as scooping the Business of the Year Award, Border Biscuits’ support of skills development was also recognised.
Other categories included best confectionery and snacking, healthy eating products and export business of the year. The awards were judged by a range of food journalists, marketers and food industry specialists and presented at a ceremony in Dunblane Hydro, presented by Hardeep Singh Kohli.
