Smithfield Awards 2017!Gareth Marshall
Open to the Q Guild’s 123 members nationwide, the 2017 Smithfield Awards attracted a record entry of almost 600 individual products, a major increase on the previous year, from 61 butcher businesses from the Scottish Highlands down to the south coast.
A total of 267 gold awards winners emerged this year across the Q Guild’s eight regions – this, too, was a new record high. Judged blind by independent panels of international food and meat industry experts, products were then shortlisted for the national final in each of the ten product categories.
We entered our six products to be judged, and we got six awards to add to our collection!
Chicken Burger – Gold
Gluten Free Black Pudding – Gold
Traditional Pork Links – Gold
Scotch Pie – Silver
Pork Merguez Sausage – Silver
Hog Roast Sausage – SIlver
Thanks to all that helped us achieve such a fantastic result!
