HIE are delighted to again support the Highlands & Islands Food & Drink Awards. The region has much to be proud of when it comes to food and drink. It is no surprise that we have an enviable reputation associated to provenance, people, place and culture. I encourage every food and drink business in the Highlands and Islands to consider entering. The awards are a tool in the business toolbox – participation creates an opportunity for free marketing and can improve brand awareness, whilst an award is a sign of quality that creates a point of difference which sends out positive signals to customers and opens new doors.

Elaine Jamieson, Head of Food and Drink, HIE
