Introducing the Scottish Retail Food & Drink Awards

The Scottish Retail Food & Drink Awards were created last year with a very specific and simple goal: to get more Scottish food and drink products onto more shelves.

The Awards are unique in encompassing the entire spectrum of producers and retailers in Scotland, from the very smallest artisan business to the very largest retailers – and everything in between.

The Scottish Retail Food & Drink Awards aim to bring producers who are keen to secure new listings together with the growing body of retailers seeking to enhance their ranges with locally, regionally and nationally produced food and drink products.
