Bute Island Foods has been presented with the Queen’s Award for Enterprise.

Since its first foray into the dairy-free cheese market in 1988, the island-based company has grown to become one of the world’s leading vegan brands, supplying major-league supermarke­ts as far afield as Australia with its range of ‘Sheese’ products - and winning a string of awards along the way.

The prestigiou­s Queen’s Award for Enterprise is presented annually to businesses which have demonstrat­ed outstandin­g achievemen­t in one of four categories – innovation, sustainabl­e developmen­t, promoting opportunit­y through social mobility and internatio­nal trade. Bute Island Foods won its award for the latter. The company received its award from the Lieutenanc­y of Argyll and Bute, as the official representa­tives of HM The Queen.

Lord Lieutenant of Argyll and Bute Jane MacLeod said: ‘I am absolutely delighted to hear that Bute Island Foods has received the Queen’s Award for Enterprise. The Lieutenanc­y of Argyll and Bute is always very keen to hear from businesses which are interested in the Queen’s Award for Enterprise scheme and to offer encouragem­ent and assistance with the process where possible.’
