Ireland Full of Stars at the Great Taste Award 2017

The Great Taste Awards are organised by the Guild of Fine Food. Being described as the ‘Oscars’ of the food world, the process to find Great Taste award winners takes several months across Ireland and the UK to complete. 

With a judging panel of over 500 of the nation’s most discerning palates belonging to food critics, chefs, cooks, restauranteurs, producers and a host of food writers and journalists - branding and packaging is removed prior to tasting. The judges then savour, confer and re-taste to decide which products are worthy of a 1-, 2- or 3-star award. To receive a 3-star rating, every judge at each judging session, has to unanimously agree that the product has achieved absolute perfection by delivering exceptional quality and taste.

A total of 12,366 products have been entered into the 2017 awards with only 165 foods achieving the highest and most coveted rating- three stars. 1011 foods scored 2 stars while 3171 were awarded 1 star - only 35% of entries were accredited.

Here at Ardkeen Quality Food Stores we are delighted so many of our producers won at this year’s awards - we stock over 60 of the 2017 award winning products. They deserve recognition for their high quality. 

Quite simply the Great Taste logo is a sign you can trust when buying food and drink online or at your local, quality retailer.
