Royal Highland Show invites entries

THE Royal Highland Show is calling upon producers from across Scotland to apply for the 2022 Scottish Handcrafts, Bread, Honey, and Dairy Championships.

The Championships recognise excellence in Scottish produce. They are judged in advance by a panel of experienced industry experts and displayed at the Royal Highland Show in June.

The Dairy Championships comprise competitions for cheese, ice cream, yoghurt and butter, with classes including those for specialty cheese, frozen yoghurt and flavoured butter.

A showcase of creativity, the Handcrafts Championships include a variety of art forms, from porcelain and beadwork to baskets and walking sticks, with the theme for entries being ‘Celebration of the Countryside’.

Each year the Bread Championships, held in association with Scotland the Bread, attract a high calibre of entries. Celebrating ‘real’ bread made without additives or preservatives, there are classes for everything from sourdough to loaves made especially by small producers.

The Honey Championships, feature several classes for all things honey related – including raw honey, honey cocktails, artwork related to beekeeping and photography featuring bees.

Chief Steward Jackie McCreery said: “The Scottish Championships are an unrivalled stage for the high-quality products that are coming out of Scotland. The Royal Highland Show is the best shop window you could ask for, and a gold, silver or bronze award catches the eye of potential customers.

“There’s nothing to lose and everything to gain.”

Entries close on April 15. Full details of entry criteria and classes can be found on the Royal Highland Show website.
