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

So, it's all over for another year!

On Friday 24th October, the Kingsmills Hotel in Inverness proved to be a fantastic venue for the sell-out 10th Highlands & Islands Food & Drink Awards Dinner and Ceremony.  Host for the evening - comedian and broadcaster, Fred MacAulay - put his hilarious spin on the evening; the delicious four course dinner was executed perfectly and the musical entertainment courtesy of Glasgow duo, RadioJam, went down a storm.

But the biggest excitement of the night was, of course, the Awards Ceremony when eager finalists found out who had been victorious.  Congratulations to everyone - Winners, Highly Commendeds and Finalists alike  - on a range of submissions that seriously put the judging panel to the test.

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!
