We’re proud to say that all three of these members have been victorious within the Caithness business awards which we host annually. Dunnet Bay Distillery won our Young Business of the Year award in 2015 while Stacks Coffee House and Bistro is the reigning Young Business of the Year. Annie Body, of Annie’s Bakery, scooped the Chamber’s Young Entrepreneur of the Year Award in 2014.
Shortlisting for the Highlands and Islands Food and Drink Awards took place in two stages, the first was on the written application of each applicant and the second included discussions with each business and sampling of their products. The judging panel is made up of industry experts from across the supply chain.
Dunnet Bay Distillers are the current holders of the Food and Drink business growth award which was presented to them at 2017 Highlands and Islands Food and Drink Awards while Stacks Coffee House and Bistro were finalists in the New business category.
We would like to wish them all huge congratulations and success in the awards.
