Be the first to source Great Taste Award-Winners at Speciality & Fine Food Fair

We’re proud to work with the Guild of Fine Food who run Great Taste – the world’s largest and most trusted food and drink awards.

A Great Taste award dramatically increases sales of the products it is attributed to. Our visitors in 2018 were the first to find out who won and source them, as 2018's award-winning products were all showcased in the Great Taste Deli.

Congratulations to Mount Mayon, exhibitors in the Discovery Zone, for being crowned The Great Taste Supreme Champion for their Pili Nuts, flavoured with Ecuadorian Cacao.

What is Great Taste?

Great Taste is the stamp of approval for great-tasting food & drink. It is the UK’s largest and most trusted accreditation scheme for food producers. Since 1994 over 100,000 products have been blind-judged by top chefs, cookery writers, food critics, restaurateurs and fine food retailers.

Every product you find has been tried and tasted by at least 16 individuals in order to earn its star-rating. 

What do the STArs Mean?

Texture, appearance, quality of ingredients and how the producer has put the product together are all very important. But above all it’s all about truly great taste. Remember, it’s not about smart packaging or clever marketing. It’s all about TASTE.

How do I enter?

Entries for 2018 are now closed, but you can visit the Guild of Fine Food for more information on the judging process that is currently taking place. Good Luck!
