Great Taste 2013

We were awarded nine stars at the Great Taste Awards 2013

Mövenpick Ice Cream proved its credentials yet again by winning a total of nine stars across six products at the Great Taste 2013 awards.

Our Pear Sorbet – described by judges as ‘lovely, fresh and clean’ - led the way as it picked up the maximum three stars and a place in the prestigious Top 50 Foods list, at the world’s largest and most rigorous food awards scheme involving over 400 judges and thousands of hours of blind tasting. It was also nominated for the Supreme Champion which placed it in the Top 15 foods, click the link below to see Charlie Turnbull's 60 second review.

Mövenpick Raspberry Sorbet picked up two stars for its ‘incredible colour’ and ‘intense, sharp flavour’ while ice cream flavours Vanilla Dream, Strawberry, Espresso Croquant and Macadamia Dulce de Leche all took one star each.

Great Taste is simply about taste. Judges are presented with, for example, a piece of cheese, a pie or a little dish of chutney, with no wrappings, jars or marks – and they taste, confer and re-taste before making the decision on whether a product should be a 1-, 2- or 3-star winner. In total more than 12 judges will have tasted and commented on each product.

Out of almost 10,000 products entered into Great Taste 2013 just 125 have been awarded 3-star. All 3-star products have been re-judged by a panel including Masterchef judge and restaurant critic Charles Champion, food buyers from Harrods, Fortnum & Mason, Selfridges, Harvey Nichols and Whole Food Markets and Michelin Star chef Russell Brown who have together decided on the 2013 Top 50 Foods, the Golden Fork Trophy winners as well as the new 2013 Supreme Champion.
