Not long now until the doors open on what is being billed as a moo-hoosive Royal Highland Show! Now in its 175th year, the Royal Highland Show organisers have rebranded the show’s food hall as Scotland’s Larder Live as part of Scotland’s Year of Food and Drink. The food hall has always been hugely popular with visitors and this year the focus on food and drink is expected to reach fever pitch. Over the last few years I have been lucky enough to attend The Show and meet some of the wonderful producers who used the event as a springboard to launch their products or help raise their public profile and awareness. Some of those businesses who will be back at the show have previously taken time out to have their own story told by answering 5 Questions. Have a read through the stories below and if you're at the Royal Highland Show this weekend you might get the chance to say hello to the men and women behind the brands.
