Great Taste is the world’s largest and most trusted food and drink awards.

The Great Taste Awards are widely recognised as the ‘Oscars’ of the food and drinks industry, the awards are the most prestigious and trusted of food and drink awards, and the acknowledged benchmark of outstanding quality in the food industry. This year saw 12,777 product entries from 106 countries, with Irish producers returning an amazing 396 awards of the 5,317 awards made.

Founded in 1994 and seen as the Oscars of the food world, the Guild of Fine Food’s Great Taste awards values taste above all else, and all products are removed from the packaging before tasting. The 144 judges – food critics, chefs, restaurateurs, retail buyers, cooks, producers, food writers, journalists and “influencers” – decide which products merit one, two or three stars.

The team at foodeezz want to wish all these artisan producers a massive congratulations and we hope you are celebrating this weekend!
