AECC becomes first Scottish venue to win healthy food award

The Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre (AECC) has become the first events venue in Scotland to be recognised for its healthy catering with a government-backed award.

Managed by Consumer Focus Scotland and funded by the country's government, the accolade recognises an ongoing commitment to providing healthier options on menus.

Brian Horsburgh, managing director of the AECC , said that the healthyliving award marked a "tremendous achievement" for the centre.

"It is becoming increasingly important for venues such as the AECC to provide healthy food alternatives, with visitors to the centre constantly looking to make sensible dietary choices," he added.

The accolade follows last year's Eat Safe Award granted to the venue by the Food Standards Agency for its efforts to provide "exceptional" hygiene and improve public confidence.

Last week, the AECC was praised for doing a "first-class" job in staging the Press and Journal newspaper's Energy Ball, which saw around 900 delegates attend the Scottish venue.
