Hampshire tastes Great!

Hampshire tastes Great!

The results are in and producers across Hampshire are toasting tasty success. Organised by the Guild of Fine Food, the Great Taste Awards are recognised as a benchmark for fine food and drink. Described as the ‘Oscars’ of the food world, the Great Taste logo has become a sign that many trust when buying food and drink.

Months of assessment goes into finding the award-winning products with over 500 judges involved in 62 judging days held from March to July across the UK. The judges gathered to blind taste in teams of 3 or 4 to ensure a balance of expertise, age and gender.

Hampshire producers have every reason to be proud having racked up over 70 stars between them. The range of prize-winning products include charcuterie, cheese, jam, lamb, apple juice, coffee, chocolate and ice cream emphasising the range and quality of local food available in the county.

Tracy Nash, Commercial Manager of Hampshire Fare commented: “We know what amazing food we have being produced here in Hampshire and it is great to see this recognised on a national platform. A lot of time, care, passion and skill goes into making these products and I am so pleased to see the efforts and talents of our producers recognised and rewarded.”
