We were delighted to win the award for Best Food & Drink Tourism Experience, sponsored by ONE at the North East Scotland Food & Drink Awards 2019 last night – the judges we’re unanimous in their decision awarding the Best Food & Drink Tourism experience to our ice cream parlour Mackie’s 19.2. They were especially impressed with our “quirky products to grab attention, strong use of social media, video content and blogger engagement, they have attracted interest and visitors from all over the globe, putting the north east’s foodie scene firmly on the map.”
We were also shortlisted at last night’s awards for the Best Retail Product (Large Business) with our Indulgent Mango & Passionfruit ice cream and for Export Business of The Year due to the growth and success of our overseas exports of Mackie’s ice cream & chocolate this past year.
