Last year we did really well in terms of winning or being shortlisted for local business awards such as Sussex Life Food Awards & Drink or Adur & Worthing Business Awards. So this year we wanted to focus on more foodie awards to celebrate the amazing taste of our products.
That’s why we are rolling around with excitement to announce that our new Cherry Bakewell recipe has been awarded 1 star with the Great Taste Awards 2018.
The Great Taste Awards are organised by the Guild of Fine Food and they are the world’s largest and most trusted food + drink awards. They have been described as the ‘Oscars’ of the food world and quite simply the Great Taste logo is the sign you can trust when buying food and drink in your local, quality retailer.
In 2018, over 500 judges from all corners of the food world, including specially trained food writers, came together at Guild of Fine Food HQ in Dorset to blind-taste in teams of 3 or 4, ensuring that the product is judged with a balance of expertise, age and gender. Putting your food or drink to the test with their panel of experts is a quick way to get honest, straightforward and impartial feedback from chefs, buyers, food writers and retailers.
The winners are all genuine food people who care about the quality of food and drink they produce. This year food and drink producers entered 12,634 products with only 37% of entries being accredited with either 1, 2 or 3 stars.
Winning the awards has been important to us as it differentiates our product from the norm and means that you, the customer, have a guarantee that the product you buy has a reliable seal of approval based upon great taste.
Some awesome comments we received from the judges include:
"These balls look good, with the cherry colour and almond chunks visible."
"Great portion size and good consistency."
"They have an appealing aroma, with cherry bakewell coming through."
"A clever and attractive product."
"We found these dinky little protein balls pleasant and enjoyable."
"Akin to cherry marzipan for sure."
