Bidvest Scotland received the Corporate Social Responsibility Award at an award ceremony in Edinburgh last week.

Scottish Wholesale Achievers, the awards initiative created and organised by the Scottish Wholesale Association (SWA) to recognise professionalism and excellence across all sectors of the industry in Scotland, took place at the Sheraton Grand Hotel & Spa, on 12th February.

Kate Salmon, executive director of the Edinburgh-based SWA (pictured second from left), commented: ‘This is an outstanding result for one of our sector’s leading foodservice businesses.

‘Bidvest Scotland has set a high benchmark for our industry and we should all be inspired by its desire to keep on improving standards.

‘Achievers encourages wholesalers to push boundaries, be innovative and challenge the perceptions of our industry as the multiple retail sector’s poor relation.

‘Bidvest Scotland is a bold and confident wholesaler, and that’s something to celebrate.’

Almost 500 people attended the Achievers gala dinner and awards presentation, hosted by broadcaster, columnist and TV presenter Cat Cubie (pictured, far right).
