Voting for Phase B is now open

Voting for Phase A has now completed. You can see the current leaderboard board, plus the previous winners from Phase A below. You can now also vote for your local sustainable hero for Phase B and nominate your local hero if you haven’t done so already!

WE vote sustainability. Will you?

This is where we need your help. You, the conscious, sustainably-minded, and change-hungry consumer.

Help us find the #FoodHeroScot winners, who will receive a documentary and marketing package worth over £25K with the aim of inspiring Scotland’s Food & Drink sector to prioritise sustainability and ethics. 

We’ve had enough of unsustainability. But we’ve also had enough of complaining. Let’s celebrate the sustainability heroes and bring positive inspiration towards a recovering industry! Vote for your hero now!


Please be assured that every vote will be counted, even if the leaderboard does not get updated straight away or shows a temporary error message. Our volunteer-run tech team is working hard to get the leaderboard up and running at all times. 

As some have submitted their vote through the nomination form for phase B, we will need to do a final count, which might affect positions. All nominees will be sent an email once all votes have been finalised, and we will be sharing final positions and number of votes on our Instagram account in the first days of August. We apologise for any inconvenience cause, and thank you for your support.


*Please be assured that every vote will be counted, even if the leaderboard does not get updated straight away. We are working on fixing the automatic updates of the leaderboard. We apologise for any confusion.​
