Conference Themes

This year's themes were chosen by our members: we'll be focussing on Health & Wellbeing and the Environment during Saturday's business programme. We'll have a range of speakers helping to lead what we hope will be a lively debate about these important challenges for our trade.

Fabulous Dinners and Awards Ceremonies

As always we'll be hosting two dinners. On Friday evening we come together for a sumptious three course dinner, followed by the Scottish Baker of the Year regional product awards and the all new Customer Choice awards. Following the awards we will enjoy live music and dancing until late.  

On Saturday it's black tie night for the Presidential Banquet. This year we will see the Presidential Chain of Office pass from current Scottish Bakers President, Ronnie Miles, of Bells Food Group, to Linda Hill, of Murray's Bakers, Perth. Saturday evening finishes off, as always, with the national product awards and the announcement of our 2020-21 Scottish Baker of the Year.
