Our Shony flakes - a master blend of seaweeds- Has reached the final of another award! Already a Finalist in World Food Innovation Awards last month for Best Condiment, and a winner of the Great Taste Award 5 years in a row, it has now been shortlisted at the Scotland Food and Drink Excellence Awards in the category 'soups, preserves and condiments' sponsored by ASDA.
Recognised by both trade and consumers as an accolade of the highest quality, the shortlist is set to whet the appetite for the winners’ announcement in June.
Scotland Food & Drink Chief Executive James Withers commented, "The Excellence Awards is a flagship event in the Scottish food and drink industry's calendar, recognising high calibre across the sector. It rewards the standout products, outstanding individuals and best practice across one of Scotland's most successful industries. It is these people, products and practices which make Scotland a Land of Food and Drink."
"This year's awards have received a record 245 entries across retail and foodservice product and business categories from 137 food and drink companies countrywide. The shortlist recognises a wide range of businesses from artisan producers to established brands. Our expert judges remarked on the high standard of entries with the tasting panel sampling 165 products over two days. Winners will be announced at the sold out awards ceremony and dinner in June, we look forward to a stellar celebration!"
