It is a truth universally acknowledged that amazing taste is key to any culinary experience. The culinary heritage in Britain is incredible and we call one of the world's most coveted blind-tasted food awards our own – the Great Taste Awards.
Judged by over 500 of the most demanding palates belonging to food critics, chefs, cooks, restaurateurs, producers and a host of food writers and journalists, Great Taste is widely acknowledged as the most respected food accreditation scheme for artisan and speciality food producers. Hundreds of hours are spent tasting more than 12,000 entries to the competition. Only 38% of this year's entries were accredited. So if you spot the golden star, proudly applied to the packaging of any food or drink, then you know you are about to taste something truly amazing.
