Stag are Award Winners!

May 15, 2017

Stag Bakeries has added another award to the trophy cabinet. The Stornoway bakery has taken a top prize at the 2017 Scottish Baker of the Year Awards. Stag was named a Regional Winner for their Traditional Scottish Oatcake.

Stag's prize was presented by Mich Turner MBE at a glittering ceremony hosted by award organisers Scottish Bakers, who are an association that supports and promotes the interest of Scottish bakers across the country. 

Stag's Traditional Scottish Oatcake is made to a traditional Scottish recipe and baked in small batches that creates a cocktail oatcake with a an oaty chewiness. It is the perfect carrier for cheese, meat, slathered with salted butter, and can even be enjoyed on their own with a good old cup of tea. 

"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 craftsmen's skills to deliver quality every time."

"We could not have come this far in the competition without the votes of all our customers"

Owner of Award winning Little Venice Cake Company and Judge on ITV’s Britain’s Best Bakery Mich Turner MBE, who presented Stag Bakeries with their award 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.”

Chief Executive of Scottish Bakers Alan Clarke commented “Over 11,000 customers from across Scotland voted for their favourite bakery products across eight categories. In April, more than 115 bakers delivered 850 of the most popular products in the land for scrutiny by a panel of 56 expert and independent judges led by artisan baker Robert Ross. With products from Stranraer to Shetland, we now have a ringing endorsement for our industry.”

The Scottish Baker of the Year Awards is the brainchild of Scottish Bakers, the Trade Association for bakers in Scotland who decided to search for the best baker in the land in 2012.
