Local company Mackintosh of Glendaveny has been honoured by Asda at its Scottish Suppliers Conference in Edinburgh.

The company which produces Extra Virgin Cold Pressed Rapeseed Oil was presented with the Inspiration Award.

Accepting the award, Gregor Mackintosh, managing director, said: “We were absolutely delighted to be recognised by Asda in this way.

“We have worked with them for nearly two years and they have been incredibly supportive to us over this time.

Runner-up in the same category was J&I Smith Bakers of Huntly which supplies a range of baked goods to nine Asda stores in the North East of Scotland and has done so for approximately five years, .

The Conference, at the Edinburgh International Climbing Arena, takes place every year and it gives Asda the opportunity to bring together its key Scottish suppliers and share with them the plans for the coming year.

Close to 100 people attended the event which culminated with the awards presentation.
