A MIDLOTHIAN food company has won its fifth award after only 20 months of business.

Supernature Oils scooped their second consecutive Quality Food Award in a lavish ceremony at the Grosvenor Hotel in London recently.

Based at Carrington Barns Farm, near Gorebridge, the rapeseed oil producer won the award for best gift pack, for their infused oils gift packs. Last year they won the best original oil award.

Chris Mann (45) of Supernature Oils, is delighted their gift pack won.

He said: “It was great to win, we just launched the gift pack in the summer so it was great to get that recognition and raise awareness of us.

“It’s much more than we anticipated when we first started and it seems to have worked quite well.

“The pack is a good way of trying out the different range of flavours we do in that size. It’s a good introduction to what we do.”

Carrington Barns Farm is a small traditionally-run farm which the family have been tenants of for five generations, since 1852.

Chris said: “Business is going well. We’ve only been going since January 2011, so it’s growing well.

“It’s been a very good year, not just for our brand but the product in general as well. Shops are stocking it and chefs are talking about it, telling people how it is good for you.”
