For many years we’ve been enthusiastic members of The Guild of Fine Food because of all the work they do to support and promote artisan food and drink production and retailing in the UK. One of the best things that they do is to run the annual Great Taste Awards. Buying a product with a Great Taste Award is such a brilliant way for consumers to know that they’re getting a top-quality product brim-full of integrity.
To put it in context; 10,000 products were blind tasted in 2016 and of these, 2520 were awarded a one-star gold, 878 grabbed two-star golds and just 141 were awarded a coveted three-star gold.
This year all four products that we entered scooped awards and three of them were the big “three star” gold medals.
This takes our total haul of stars to 55 since 2005 (where the old silver was equivalent to a two star etc).
