A NUMBER of bakeries across Scotland have been shortlisted for the 2024 World Championship Scotch Pie Awards.

This follows on from judging day at the Carnegie Conference Centre in Dunfermline which saw some 60 pie professionals select their top picks from nearly 500 entries.

To make their shortlist, the judges assessed touch, taste, appearance and smell with only one product per company permitted into each of the categories.

Categories include awards for the best scotch pie, sausage roll, macaroni pie and more. 

The category winners will be announced at around lunchtime on January 16, 2024, at the Westerwood Hotel in Cumbernauld.

Lesley Cameron, recently-appointed CEO of Scottish Bakers, said: "I have been amazed at the passion of each and every entrant not to mention the creativity, quality and innovation of the entries submitted for consideration by our professional judges."
