Upcoming Events 

You’ll find our team at several shows and events over the coming months:

Taste of Grampian – Scotland’s biggest one-day food festival, which takes place at the Thainstone Centre in Inverurie on Saturday 1st June. This year’s event includes demonstrations by BBC Masterchef presenter, John Torode, and Made in Chelsea’s Spencer Matthews, who was a surprise finalist in last year’s Celebrity Masterchef. We’re delighted to be sponsoring the children’s activity marquee, with lots of hands-on and educational activities for young visitors.

The Scottish Traditional Boat Festival which takes place in Portsoy on 22nd and 23rd June, brings together boats, music, crafts, food and drink to celebrate the region’s rich cultural heritage. This year we’re delighted to be sponsoring the main stage for the first time.

The Turriff Show – the largest two-day agricultural show in Scotland – in Turriff on 4th and 5th August . It’s a fantastic weekend out for all the family, with something for everyone, and this year’s event will see a much-expanded food offering, with 50+ stands, demonstrations and foodie activities for all the family.

The final event in our calendar is the 26th annual World Porridge Making Championships, which take place in Carrbridge on 11th and 12th October. This year’s competition has been extended to two days, with the ‘Silver Spurtle’ for competitors aged 16 and under on the Friday, and the ‘Golden Spurtle’ for adults on the Saturday. We are delighted to be the main sponsor once again. Watch this space for full details of the event and the competitors – it’s going to be a fantastic event.


We’re always looking for new events to attend, so if you’re organising an event with a food focus, contact us with the details and we’ll let you know if we’re available.

Goodie bags

We’re keen to get as many people as possible trying our porridge to see why it’s the best.

If you’re an event organiser and are looking for items for your goodie bags, contact us with details of your event and we’ll let you know if we can provide samples and leaflets. We support events all over Scotland and we’re particularly interested in supporting food and drink, sports, healthy living, family and charity events.
