For those who already follow us on Facebook and Twitter, you’ll already know that we won a very prestigious award at the weekend.
On Friday, May 23rd the team from Dean’s ventured into Edinburgh for the Scotland Food & Drink Excellence Awards, which was being held at the Edinburgh International Conference Centre, which is a lovely venue.
In total there were 22 categories that ranged from retail product categories, Foodservice Product of the Year, Health Initiative of the Year, Brand Success of the Year, Export Business of the Year, Innovation, Investing in People, Success Through Partnership, Environmental Sustainability, Scottish Sourcing, Scottish Food & Drink Entrepreneur, Business of the Year, Small Business of the Year and so on…
The category we were in the running for was the ‘Investors in People’ award. As many of you will know we take great pride in our staff, ensuring that they are fully qualified to carry out their day to day duties at Dean’s. We have always made sure that our staff training and development is of a high standard and this award is now proof to that. It’s only fair that we take our hats off to our competitors, The Scottish Salmon Company who also had their eyes on the award.
We are extremely proud of this achievement, and we cannot thank everyone enough who was involved in our winning of this award.
Above all, this award underpins our ongoing commitment to people development and having a multi-skilled workforce. Without them we would not be able to provide you with the fantastic shortbread and other products that you all love.
