Important update – Excellence Awards 2020

We have made the difficult decision to not go ahead with the (postponed) Excellence Awards this September. With social distancing likely to remain in place for some time, we are unable to facilitate the judging of our fantastic entries in a fair and consistent way, and it is increasingly unlikely that we would be able to celebrate together in the way that we would all wish.

The Excellence Awards will be back next year on Thursday 9 September 2021, during Scottish Food & Drink Fortnight, when we will be able to really celebrate our fantastic people and products that make our industry one of the best food and drink industries in the world.

For over 20 years the Scotland Food & Drink Excellence Awards have recognised and rewarded the very best of Scotland’s food and drink.

They celebrate the relentless pursuit of perfection from companies, teams and individuals who, through their creative efforts, are raising the bar and helping to build Scotland’s reputation as a Land of Food and Drink.

The Excellence Awards play an important role in helping deliver on our ambition to double the value of the industry by 2030. They are the culmination of all the hard work, innovation and passion that happens every working day and often well into the night.
