Vote now!The Great Taste Awards are described as the Oscars of the gourmet food industry. Producers are invited to submit products for judging in classes ranging from 1A - Single Estate Tea to 30B - Herb Liqueurs. In between they cover almost every type of food. Sausage lovers should turn to class 21 (just after Yoghurts) followed by Bacon, Ham, Salami etc etc.
They give three awards - Gold, Silver and Bronze. Most awards were given in Class 21B (Sausages with flavouring), 27 sausages secured awards - 12 Gold, 9 Silver and 6 Bronze. Whilst a Great Taste Award is worthwhile, a single bronze award nothing to crow about.
One of the themes of this years awards is the Irish - they are everywhere winning awards in most categories.
