"Our winners are all genuine food people who care about the quality of food and drink they produce. Those producers entered 10,000 products with only 130 foods achieving the highest and most coveted rating, three stars. We had 597 foods grabbing 2 stars and 2382 were awarded a 1 star. That means only 31% of entries were accredited – it’s tough. Didn't they do well?"

Great Taste, organised by the Guild of Fine Food, is the acknowledged benchmark for fine food and drink. It has been described as the ‘Oscars’ of the food world and the ‘epicurean equivalent of the Booker prize’. Quite simply the Great Taste logo is the sign you can trust when buying food and drink in your local, quality retailer.
