Business aWARDS 2015 - Copy



Jannettas Gelateria has been shortlisted in the Food and Drink category of the Fife Business Awards.

The ice-cream institution, which has been operating from its original St Andrews site since 1908, has made it through to the final stage of the Fife Chamber of Commerce awards, which will be held in Glenrothes on Friday 18 March 2016.

Jannettas will compete against two other local businesses in the ‘Excellence in Food and Drink’ category, one of 11 categories open to businesses throughout the Kingdom. The good news comes just two months after Jannettas won the ‘Retail Business of the Year’ category of The Courier Business Awards, for the second year running.

Co-owner Owen Hazel commented, “As a business which has been firmly rooted in Fife for over 100 years, we are absolutely delighted to be shortlisted in these prestigious business awards which are all about the very best companies operating right here on our doorstep.  Fife has a fantastic and growing reputation for excellence in so many sectors and we are delighted to be judged as being part of that excellence. We owe so much to Fife, are absolutely committed to the area, and very much looking forward to the evening, and sharing in the success of so many other local businesses.”

Fife Chamber President John Silcock added, “We have had a fantastic response in terms of entries to the Fife Business Awards. The quality of applications was exceptional and the judges charged with deciding the shortlist did not have an easy task.

“The awards dinner has become a firm fixture in both the Chamber and Fife’s event calendar and is an excellent opportunity for us to showcase the diverse and successful business community within Fife. I would also like to extend my thanks to the sponsors, as without them, the Fife Business Awards would not be possible.”

The winners will be announced at a gala dinner hosted by Kaye Adams on Friday 18 March 2016 at Rothes Halls, Glenrothes.

Jannettas Gelateria, St Andrews is open between 9am and 10pm, seven days a week. For more information, visit
