We’re delighted to have won eight awards at the Great Taste Awards 2014. The Awards celebrate the best of retailer own-brand food and drink and have been described as the ‘Oscars’ of the food world.
Our products were put to the test by 400 judges over 50 judging days to give them their seal of approval. And our Extra Special range, in partnership with Leiths School of Food and Wine, came out on top with seven of the eight awards.
Our coffee ranges in particular caught the attention of the judges! Our Extra Special Ethiopian Fairtrade Ground Coffee was awarded two stars; it’s slow-roasted Arabica coffee is grown on the sloping plains of Western Ethiopia and has a rich chocolate flavour with a floral sweetness and hint of apricot. Our Extra Special Colombian Fairtrade Coffee Beans and Extra Special 100% Arabica Decaffeinated Organic Nicaraguan were also awarded with one star each.
Here are the other tasty products that impressed the judges this year:
