Irish Seafood Companies Collect Medals at ‘Great Taste Awards’ in UK
Organised by the Guild of Fine Food Retailers, the Awards have carved a reputation over the last decade as the single most sought after seal of real quality in speciality food and drink. The Awards judging criteria are tough but scrupulously fair. The initial stages took place over six days in London at the end of July, when every entry, nearly 4,000, in 186 different classes is decanted, where necessary cooked and then blind tasted by our teams of experts. Over 150 judges are involved and it falls to them to decide which foods deliver a high enough standard to be award winners – the highest acknowledgement of craftsmanship and dedication in the making of superb food and drink.
