Small producers play a vital and very significant role in Scotland’s food and drink sector, a fact that we are recognising within the Scottish Retail Food & Drink Awards.
We are delighted to have SPAR Scotland – the country’s leading convenience retailing group – as sponsors of the Small Producers category and this area of the website.
All food product award categories will be judged and awarded, where appropriate, in two distinct streams: Small Producers with an annual turnover of less than £1m and Large Producers with an annual turnover of more than £1m. We feel this is a fair, and balanced approach which will benefit both Small Producers and Large Producers alike.
All entries of all sizes will, however, go through precisely the same rigorous judging process, with every single entry being scrutinised by our expert panel of judges.
The Scottish Retail Food & Drink Awards aims to recognise and reward the best of the incredible work that is being done by smaller artisan producers across Scotland with our Small Producer awards for food and drink that is produced in Scotland to the highest standards today.
Winning a Scottish Retail Food & Drink Award will be a first class way to make your product stand out and a great way to get the ear of any retail buyer. Our ultimate aim is simply to get more fantastic quality Scottish food and drink products onto more shelves in Scottish retail outlets.
