Edinburgh-based Nairn’s, the UK’s number one producer of oatcakes and one of the UK’s most popular gluten free brands, is celebrating after winning two top awards at the prestigious Food Manufacture Excellence Awards. The awards have been running for 19 years and have become established as a coveted mark of quality and excellence.

The UK’s food and drink manufacturers are often renowned for their innovative approach to food development, high-tech manufacturing and high-quality raw materials. The Food Manufacture Excellence Awards provides a platform to celebrate and recognise this hard work and the boundaries that have been pushed over the past 12 months.

Nairn’s is outright winner of two of the most impressive 2020 Awards:

·      Large Free From Manufacturing Company of the Year 2020

·      Large Food Manufacture Company of the Year 2020

Martyn Gray, Managing Director, said: “We are delighted to win these awards.  The team are proud to be publicly recognised for all the hard work that has gone into the expansion of our gluten free business, as well as ensuring our products consistently meet the highest possible standards.  Innovation has been an important part of our growth, and investment in our larger ‘state of the art’ dedicated gluten free bakery a couple of years ago gives us both the capacity and capability to bring award winning new products to market.

Given the calibre of all those entering, Nairn’s winning both Large Free From Manufacturing Company of the Year and Large Food Manufacture Company of the Year is a great accolade for our business.  To be considered by this circle to be “the best” is a high honour indeed.”
