The winners for the Food and Drink Awards announced!
27th November 2020
The winners of the 2020 Midlothian & East Lothian Food and Drink Awards have been announced. There wasn’t the usual Food & Drink Gala Dinner at Eskmills this year, in light of the COVID-19 pandemic, but instead, the winners of the 2020 Midlothian & East Lothian Food & Drink Awards have been revealed at a virtual award ceremony on 26th November.
The Awards were presented by Midlothian & East Lothian Chamber of Commerce (MELCC) in partnership with headline sponsors East Lothian Food and Drink and Lemac, to celebrate the innovation, resilience, altruism and successes that have taken place within the industry since the last awards, particularly in response to the vast challenges that the sector has faced due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Mid & East Lothian Chamber Chief Executive, Keith Barbour said, “We’re very pleased to be able to recognise our brilliant hospitality sector during this extraordinarily difficult time. MELCC is proud to celebrate such a wonderful range of businesses and individuals, all showcasing the strong stuff that our local industry is made of. There’s been huge amounts of innovation and creativity – even during such a tough time, we’ve much to celebrate. Congratulations to all the winners, and nominees.”
We would, as ever, like to extend our gratitude to all of our awards sponsors and supporters this year. Without these businesses' support the awards would not be possible. To view the FOOD & DRINK ONLINE BROCHURE HERE
