Bay City Roller front-man Les McKeown will once again take up the difficult task as pie tester. Les said: “I was honoured to be asked to join the panel of judges for this iconic competition. I believe I will be taking on the Scotch Pie category this year and the stakes are high. So in this category in particular we are looking for something really special that stands out from the crowd.”

2014 winner Stephen McAllister from The Kandy Bar of Saltcoats said “I was delighted when we were announced as the winner and to have been able to call our Scotch Pies the WORLD CHAMPION as judged by a panel of experts has made a huge and positive impact on our business in the last year. The award was proof that The Kandy Bar team are the best in the land and we have gone from strength to strength.”

The competition is supported by Scottish Bakers and the Scottish Federation of Meat Traders. Both trade associations actively support and promote bakers and butchers in Scotland by encouraging and sharing best practise.

The competition is sponsored by wholesaler to the food industry, Bako Northern and Scotland. http://www.bakoscotland.co.uk/
