Over 60 entries from 23 food and drink companies were sampled and assessed by the judging panel; Peter Bruce, managing director of Entier Limited, Lorna Murray, Local Food Sourcing and Technical Manager for Asda and Simon Cousins, series producer of BBC Scotland’s Landward.
Following the judging process, over 200 guests, including our Keith, attended the awards dinner, which was held at the Marcliffe Hotel and Spa in Aberdeen.
And beyond our wildest expectations, we received the Taste of Grampian Local Independent Retailer of the Year, which was awarded to a retail outlet that ‘champions local food and drink and supports other local food and drink producers'!
Winning this prestigious award, which was sponsored by SAC Food & Drink and Taste of Grampian was an honour, and is all thanks to the fabulous local producers and suppliers that have supported us over the last year.
If you follow us on Facebook or Twitter, you will have noticed that the reaction has been incredible - our feeds have been going absolutely crazy since we won!
Thank you so, so much for all the congratulations. We are incredibly proud to have won, and we are equally as proud to say that we offer a true taste of the North East.
PS. Here's some photos from the awards ceremony. Doesn't Keith look happy!?
