The Edinburgh International Conference Centre and its catering provider Leith’s have signed up to a pioneering Scottish food and drink pledge.

They are among the first businesses to make the commitment, along with Edinburgh Airport and NorthLink Ferries.

Under the pledge, the firms will work with various food and drink partners to ensure the use of authentic, sustainable Scottish produce where possible.

Last Thursday evening’s Scottish Business Awards, featuring special guest speaker George Clooney, became the first EICC-held event to endorse the pledge.

The EICC’s chief executive, Marshall Dallas, said: “The quality of our food and beverages is an important part of the EICC’s success and through our long-standing partnership with Leith’s we think what we are able to offer is right up there with the very best.

“We also pride ourselves on being one of the most sustainable venues on the domestic and international stage.”

Last week’s awards event hosted some 2,000 guests.
