Twinings Shines At The Great Taste Awards 2019

May we proudly present the Twinings recipients for the Great Taste Award 2019… 

Great Taste Awards – The “Oscars” of the Food World

Great Taste is the largest and most trusted accreditation scheme for fine food and drink. It offers a unique benchmarking and product evaluation service leading to an independent accreditation that encourages confidence and commercial success for small business, generating greater awareness for products locally, regionally, nationally and internationally.

Since 1994, more than 120,000 products have been put through this robust judging process. Each one is fastidiously blind-tasted by selected chefs, buyers, fine food retailers, restaurateurs, food critics and writers in teams of 3 or 4 ensuring a balance of expertise, age and gender.

In 2019 over 500 judges, including specifically trained food writers inputting judges’ comments, came together in Dorset over 75 days. Tea was judged along with filter coffee and espresso at specialist test centres and we are extremely proud to announce that not 1, not 2 but 8 of our products were awarded the coveted Great Taste Award stars!
