A north-east bakery has taken home a top prize in a national competition.
J&I Smith Bakers of Huntly was awarded Regional Gold for its high brown bread in the 2018 Scottish Baker of the Year Awards.
The team was given the prize at a ceremony hosted by Scottish Bakers, an association that supports and promotes the interests of Scottish bakers.
The award was presented by the owner of award winning Little Venice Cake Company Mich Turner MBE who said: “It has given me great pleasure to be involved in the competition again this year.
“There have been some fantastic entries and all the prizes I have handed out to bakers have been worthy in every way. I wish all our winners well in the coming year.”
John Smith of J&I Bakers of Huntly said: “We are extremely pleased to be recognised as one of Scotland’s best bakers.
“We take our business very seriously and use traditional methods and craft skills to deliver quality every time.
“But we could not have come this far in the competition without the votes of our customers, thank you.”
