We’ve plenty to celebrate as the healthyliving award passes its fourth anniversary! With more than 1000 awards presented over the last four years, the award continues to go from strength to strength.

In this issue you can get a flavour of the range and diversity of some of our award holding establishments, with news of a bus depot, a programme of cookery classes and fine dining at heritage venues.

Congratulating our latest award winners
Caterers from more than 150 establishments came together in June to celebrate their success at our latest award ceremony. The event was held at the Beardmore Conference Centre in Clydebank, where certificates were presented to the award winners by Yvonne Traynor, Acting Project Manager for the healthyliving award.
Yvonne commented: “The level of commitment shown by these award winners in producing healthy food is exemplary and they have set an industry benchmark which all organisations should strive to attain.”
“They are helping their customers to make informed choices by making healthier options widely available and are playing their part in improving the diet of people across Scotland.”
Once again a diverse range of establishments was represented at the award ceremony, from a mobile soup kitchen, a juice bar and a farmhouse guest house to large workplace restaurants, hospitals, colleges and universities.
As well as first-time award winners, many of the caterers were there to receive a renewal certificate, having been successfully re-assessed following the completion of their first two-year term as award holders.
And special mention went to Sodexo at Strathallan School for their achievement of the healthyliving award plus.
