WHAT IS GREAT TASTE?

Great Taste is quite simply the stamp of approval for great-tasting food & drink. It is the UK’s largest and most trusted accreditation scheme for food producers. Since 1994 over 100,000 products have been blindjudged by top chefs, cookery writers, food critics, restaurateurs and fine food retailers. Every product you find has been tried and tasted by at least 16 individuals in order to earn its star-rating. 

WHAT DO THE STAR RATINGS MEAN?

Texture, appearance, quality of ingredients and how the producer has put the product together are all very important. But above all it’s all about truly great taste. Remember, it’s not about smart packaging or clever marketing. It’s all about TASTE.

WHAT ARE THE JUDGES LOOKING FOR?

“When I’m looking for something special,the first thing I want to know is ‘How delicious is this going to be?’ In a world of confusing labels, the Great Taste Awards are a genuine force for good.”

Alex James, farmer and Blur bassist

“I’ve been involved with the judging process and know the rigorous stages that each product goes through to be awarded the star rating. This gives consumers reassurance that whatever has the black and gold label, is of the highest quality and tastes wonderful.”

Antonio Carlucci, Italian Chef
