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

The 2014 shortlists have been announced!  

See the full list HERE.  

Our esteemed Judging Panel have spent many hours reading, analysing, deliberating, discussing and tasting and this varied list of finalists is the result!  With so many excellent submissions and top quality products to sample, they had an unenviable task with many worthy entries just being pipped to the post.  Read the official press release here.

There is now a four month wait until the winners will be revealed at the popular Awards Dinner & Ceremony on Friday 24th October.

Congratulations finalists and thank you to everyone who took the time to enter. 


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!
