Duncan Farms are celebrating a double win at the North East Scotland Food and Drink Awards 2018. The team was thrilled to take home the Innovation Award and the Investing in Skills Development Award at Thursday evening’s event held at Ardoe House Hotel.
The awards are a great promotion of the North East’s growing food and drink sector and Duncan Farms were honored to collect the two accolades. It was an exciting evening for all the team who were delighted to receive the recognition for all their hard work over the past few years.
The judges praised our vertically integrated business model that allows complete traceability, cost competitiveness and risk management. Yet, they were also impressed by our ability to integrate innovation within sound business practices and how we encourage creative thinking within our whole team, enabling us to win the Innovation Award.
We clinched the Investing in Skills Development Award for providing a wide range of training for team members, at all levels, resulting in improved business performance and an ambitious atmosphere within the business.
Many thanks to ONE (Opportunity North East) and Aberdeenshire Council for delivering the event. Thank you also to our category sponsors CMS and Skills Development Scotland.
