The World Championship Scotch Pie Awards 2020 has announced the dates for the 21st Championship and the timing could not be better.
With a damp start to Autumn and a long winter ahead, customers will be looking for warming flavour-filled treats and traditional savoury snacks and the ever-popular Scotch Pie more than fits the bill.
In addition to Scotch pies, bakers and butchers are invited to enter their best sausage rolls, bridies, speciality savouries and Scottish football pies as well as something sweet in the form of an Apple Pie.
Entries can be submitted online at www.worldchampionshipscotchpieawards.org and must be received by the deadline of 31st October 2019.
Judging day is on 20th November and products should be delivered to Carnegie Conference Centre, Halbeath Road, Dunfermline, KY11 8DY between 9.00am and 11.30am to be in with a chance of taking a top prize at a lavish awards ceremony on 14th January 2020.
Butchers and bakers across Scotland will have the opportunity to be recognised as producing the highest quality savoury products around the globe with awards given to those producing the best products in each category. The winner of the Scotch Pie category will be declared the WORLD CHAMPION.
The competition, which has run for 21 years, highlights the fantastic pastry products that bakers and butchers create every day from the humblest of ingredients. Recognising the best & in this way rewards excellence and raises the bar in the industry.
Alasdair Smith, Chief Executive of Scottish Bakers which manages the competition said, “We are delighted to be launching the 21st World Scotch Pie Championships. We have a huge number of hard working butchers and bakers who deserve recognition for delivering great products day in and day out.
“The World Scotch Pie Champion title is highly sought after and this year I am looking forward to sampling for myself some of the best products on the market today and to seeing who the judges pick out as having produced something that I know will be world class.”
