FISH and seafood companies have just two weeks to enter the Scotland Food & Drink Excellence Awards, which acknowledges the very best premium food products.

The fish and seafood category is sponsored by The Crown Estate and is open to companies whose products are produced, processed and packaged in Scotland.

 Alex Adrian, Aquaculture Operations Manager for The Crown Estate said: ‘Celebrating excellence is an important part of driving sustainable growth, which is why we’re proud to be sponsoring this category in Scotland Food & Drink’s Excellence Awards.

‘2014 is a critical year for the food and drink sector as a host of cultural and sporting events bring international audiences to Scotland.

‘These awards give Scottish producers the chance to shine by showcasing the range and quality of fish and seafood produce.’

All entries for the Scottish Food and Drink Excellence Awards must be submitted online by Friday February 28 at the dedicated website

The winners will be announced in May at an awards ceremony at the Edinburgh International Conference Centre.

The Crown Estate manages leasing of the seabed (but does not have a statutory regulatory or planning role).

The aquaculture team works closely with industry and public bodies to facilitate sustainable development, which in turn delivers tangible benefits to coastal communities.

To promote excellence and industry development, The Crown Estate holds biennial Scottish Marine Aquaculture Awards, with the next scheduled for 2015, and invests £250,000 each year in aquaculture R&D.
