About Great Taste

Great Taste, organized 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.

The Judges

In 2017 over 500 judges, including specially trained food writers inputting judges’ comments, came together at 62 judging days from March through to early July.

The winners

The winners are all genuinely foodies who care about the quality of food and drink they produce. Those producers entered 12,366 products with only 165 foods achieving the highest and most coveted rating, three stars. We had 1011 foods grabbing 2 stars and 3171 were awarded a 1 star. That means only 35% of entries were accredited – it’s tough.

“We are ecstatic with the results, it is a privilege to be one of the very first Mexican brands to be able to offer a full range of table sauces accredited by the prestigious Great Taste award.  I am proud to be a Mexican sharing the authentic flavors of Mexico among the Brits”, says Rolando Cardenas the creator of KanKun Mexican Sauces.
