CIS Excellence Young Chef of the Year sponsor, Brakes Scotland, scored a silver award during Scottish Food & Drink Fortnight last month for its efforts to support local producers. The 2017 business challenge – an initiative aimed at encouraging businesses to change one thing about their organisation to better promote local produce –  saw Brakes Scotland launch Scotch Beef PGI into their extensive foodservice range.

Hosting a beef cookery masterclass with QMS – led by BBC Masterchef and CIS Excellence Award Advisory Board member, Gary Maclean (pictured below) – the company is proud of its achievements.

Fiona Richmond, Head of Regional Food at Scotland Food & Drink, said: ‘Scottish Food Fortnight, which ran from 2nd-17th September, represents a fantastic way to celebrate our growers, producers, chefs and restaurateurs, as well as Scotland’s vast and varied larder.’
