Scottish seafood supplier Amity Fish Company has been awarded two prestigious Great Taste Awards.

The company’s bestselling Panko Breaded Single Wholetail Scampi has been re-awarded a Great Taste star after first winning the accolade in 2021, with judges describing it as “sweet and plump”.

In a welcome surprise, Amity’s Panko Breaded Queenie Scallops have also been awarded a star, with judges deeming the product “sweet, soft and succulent with a lovely crunch”.

Great Taste is one of the largest and most trusted accreditation schemes for fine food and drink.

The 1-star rating signifies these products are ‘simply delicious’ in a rigorous judging process that saw over 14,000 products undergo blind taste-testing by a selection of chefs, buyers, fine food retailers, restaurateurs, food critics and writers over 70 judging days.

Of the wins, Amity managing director Jimmy Buchan said: “Picking up a second Great Taste award for our signature Panko Breaded Scampi, along with a new accolade for our Panko Breaded Queenie Scallops is testament that the products are making an impact on judges; we are thrilled to receive these new awards which is a story of pride and success from sea to plate and is reflected in the response of our customers to these products.”

Amity’s double-win follows hot on the heels of another potential accolade. The company has been named a finalist in the Business Growth category at the Herald’s Digital Transformation Awards, which celebrates Scottish businesses using digital technology in new ways.
