Macsween triumphs at Midlothian Food and Drink Awards
Macsween has been named 'Best Local Food or Drink Producer' at the inaugural Midlothian Food and Drink Awards. Organised by Midlothian Tourism Forum and Midlothian Council, the awards are designed to highlight the fantastic range of top quality local food and drink producers.
Jo Macsween said: "While we sell our haggis and black pudding across the UK and internationally, the company was born in the Lothians and is proud of this heritage. This award therefore means a huge amount to us all and is testament to the hard work put in by all at team Macsween."
The awards process began with a public vote, where 1,889 Midlothian residents picked their favourite food and drink suppliers. This identified a shortlist of companies, whom were judged by a panel from Midlothian Tourism Forum, Visit Scotland, East of Scotland Food and Drink Network and Midlothian Council.
Macsween won the best producer category against three other excellent producers in the form of Stewart Brewing, Creme-de-la-Cupcake and Cosmo Products.
