Record entries for Great Taste Awards 2019

Following 75 days of judging and a record breaking 12,772 entries from 104 nations, the results of the world’s most coveted food and drink awards, Great Taste, have been released.

Great Taste 3-star winners from around the world include; an Organic Thyme Honey produced by The Family Beez from Serifos Island, Greece; Matsesta Tea Factory’s Premium Black Organic Matsesta Tea, which is grown and hand-harvested in Sochi, Russia; the Mount Mayon Premium Pili Nuts Kerala Coconut Curry from Hong Kong-based The Passionate Food Company; and the 4.5% ABV Keeved Bottle-Conditioned Cider, produced by Seidr y Mynydd in Cardiff, Wales.

These producers can now display the gold and black Great Taste logo, with 1-, 2- or 3- stars, on their award-winning products.

Recognised as a stamp of excellence among consumers and retailers alike, Great Taste, organised by the Guild of Fine Food, values taste above all else, with no regard for branding or packaging. Whether it is honey, kombucha, coffee or bread being judged, all products are removed from their packaging before being blind-tasted. The judges then savour, confer and re-taste to decide which products are worthy of a 1-, 2- or 3-star award.

Out of the record 12,772 products entered in 2019, from 104 different countries, 3,409 were awarded 1-star, 1,326 awarded 2-star and 208 awarded the top 3-star accolade.
