4 Gold Great Taste Awards

We’re very pleased to announce that we won a total of 5 Gold Stars at the Great Taste Awards 2012!

Described by one judge as “the best ice-cream I’ve ever had”, our Caramelita Ice Cream was awarded two gold stars and praised for its “creamy taste punctuated by caramel”, while our Swiss Chocolate Ice Cream, Maple Walnut Ice Cream and Passion Fruit and Mango Sorbet also won gold stars. One gold star from the panel represents a rating of “close to perfect”, while two are for products considered to be “faultless”.

Guild of Fine Food Chairman Bob Farrand added: “To be awarded Gold in Great Taste is a significant achievement – it is no easy win. Only the very best products entered receive an award after being judged by a minimum of 12 of the UK’s finest palates.”

Run by the Guild of Fine Food, the Awards are judged on ‘blind’ testing by industry professionals including chefs, restaurant critics and fine food writers such as Masterchef judge Charles Campion, food writers Lucus Hollweg and Xanthe Clay, along with buyers from leading food halls such as Harrods, Selfridges and Fortnum & Mason.  Between them, the judging panel tasted more than 8,800 products entered into the Awards this year.
