Entering the Awards was a valuable way for us to refocus and re-enthuse about what our business is doing and why.

Highlands & Islands Food & Drink Awards

We're delighted to announce that the 2014 Awards are now open for entry!  Simply browse the 12 categories - we're sure you'll find at least one that's suitable for your business - follow the instructions, complete the application form and email it back to us by Wednesday 23rd April.  It's that straightforward!

Once the panel of judges have completed two rounds of scoring, consideration, discussion and in some cases, tasting, we will let you know by the end of June if you have reached the finalist stage.  Read the full launch news release here.

We very much hope that you'll be joining us at the 10th Awards Dinner & Ceremony at the Kingsmills Hotel, Inverness on Friday 24th October 2014.

Good luck!

The Awards, now in their tenth year, complement the work of the Highlands & Islands Food & Drink Forum by encouraging food and drink businesses to be innovative, forward thinking and collaborative and by celebrating excellence and achievement. 


With some of the best natural produce in the world, the Awards showcase the wide range of food and drink products in the region and the equally diverse profile of businesses, from internationally renowned companies to small innovative producers.



We entered a few categories.  It was straightforward and a useful exercise in its own right.  The fact we won an Award was the icing on the cake!
