A new directory for the Scottish wholesale food and drink sector has been created by the Scottish Wholesale Association (SWA) to help local and regional producers connect with wholesalers that can work with them to find new routes to market.

Entries for the 2024 SWA Achievers Awards are 20% up on the previous event with many wholesalers who have not entered the competition before taking part.

The Scottish Wholesale Association (SWA) has set out ambitious plans to reach net zero by 2040, in time for Scotland’s net-zero target of 2045, in a new report, ‘Decarbonising the Scottish Wholesale Sector’, which explores the sector’s carbon emissions and attitudes to climate action.

Wholesalers are encouraged to celebrate their businesses and recognise the efforts of their staff in various roles by entering the Achievers Awards 2024 which are launched this week

We've uploaded all the photos for you to scroll through and that were taken on the night, from the drinks reception to the awards ceremony itself.

Congratulations again to all the winners of Scottish Wholesale Achievers 2023 and sincere thanks to all our sponsors.
