We are delighted to unveil the official shortlist for the inaugural Scottish Retail Food & Drink Awards.

After almost three weeks of intensive judging involving hundreds of products and more than 60 expert judges from across the food and drink sector, we have now established the shortlist of the products that scored highest across our comprehensive judging criteria.

The full shortlist can be viewed below.

Our virtual judging process has allowed judges to spend much more time in their own homes with every product entered than would be the case under standard judging procedures – and we are confident that this given them uniquely deep insight into the characteristics of every aspect of food and drink product they judged. The quality of the entries that we received surpassed our judges’ expectations, this is testament to the passion, commitment of all of the producers behind the products on the shortlist.

The result, as you see below, is a shortlist of outstanding Scottish products, as well as a selection of fantastic products from UK producers targeting retail listings in Scotland.

Our goal has always been to get more Scottish food and drink products onto more Scottish shelves – and we look forward to seeing many of the products above gaining new listings in Scottish stores over the coming months.

Make sure you join us at 11am on 29th April when we will announce the winners of the Scottish Food & Drink Awards 2021.
