Two Galloway businesses were celebrating after coming among the winners at the 2016 Scottish Rural Awards, in Edinburgh last Thursday evening.

Wigtown-based Galloway Chillies took away the Highly Commended award in the Artisan Food category, whilst The Loch Ryan Oyster Fishery Co. at Stranraer, was Highly Commended in the Aquaculture category.

Sheena Horner from Galloway Chillies said afterwards: “I was delighted and thrilled to be Highly Commended at the Scottish Rural Awards. I still can’t believe that my wee business from Galloway received this award in a field of so many amazing Scottish Artisan Food business nominees.”
