Fife butchers scoop gold and silver awards
Butchers across Fife are celebrating success at their industry’s main awards.
Judges from the Scottish Craft Butchers have honoured a number of local companies with a host of gold and silver awards.
Judging took place at Forth Valley College just before lockdown, and the winners were announced this week.
Scott Jarron, president, said: “These evaluations always reveal really appealing products that craft butchers make and sell. The superior quality of BBQ and grill products is widely acknowledged by customers and the innovative range comes as a response to consumers becoming more adventurous with their tastes and they are always keen to support local businesses who make their own unique quality products.
“It is always worth going the extra mile for something extra special.”
