Ann scoops food champion award

SCOOP Wholefoods has been named the overall winner of the Shetland Food Champion Awards, voted for by those who attended this weekend’s Shetland Food Fair, in the Clickimin Centre.

A proud supporter of Shetland food, Scoop owner Ann Johnson has over recent years steadily increased the range of local seasonal produce available at the shop.

The awards, run by Shaw Marketing, attracted more then 300 votes, nominating more than 60 local businesses.

The winners in the three categories were:

Best Eatery:
Hay’s Dock cafe restaurant with runners up Frankie’s Fish and Chip Shop and Drumquin House;

Best Producer:
Shetland Fudge, with runners up Transition Turriefield and Shetland Cheese;

Retailers:
Scoop Wholefoods, with runners up Scalloway Meat Company and J.K. Anderson.

Johnson said: “This award is recognition of the partnership Scoop has with local producers and with our engagement with local customers. Thanks to everybody who nominated us!”

Looking back on a successful food fair weekend, Jay Hawkins, of Shetland Cheese and the Shetland Food Producers Group said he already was looking forward to next year’s event.

“There have been many new producers bringing more people in and they’ve done really well sales wise.

It’s a great experience to come here for the first time, for the new producers to meet people and get feedback,” he added.
