One hundred and forty outstanding Scottish food and drink products have made it onto the shortlist for the Scottish Retail Food & Drink Awards 2022. The products represent a broad selection of food and drink categories and have been chosen by more than 50 experienced, expert judges after more than four weeks of intense judging.

To replicate the consumer experience as closely as possible, the majority of the judging was carried out at home with the judges having the products delivered to their doorsteps, allowing them to experience the products in exactly the same way as the consumer would.

The final phase of the judging, including the Platinum judging, was carried out in two days of face-to-face sessions at The Corinthian in Glasgow where Executive Chef Stewart McAllister prepared the products in line with on-pack instructions for the Platinum judging panel.

All food products remaining after the judging were donated to The Lodging House Mission, a Glasgow-based charity dedicated to providing care and support to homeless, vulnerable and socially excluded people.

The winners of the Scottish Retail Food & Drink Awards 2022 will be announced at a special ceremony on 31 May at The Corinthian in Glasgow.
