The Great Taste Awards
The Great Taste Scheme is the UK’s largest and most trusted awards scheme in the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland for specialty food and drink. Only the best-tasting products receive the honour of displaying the coveted black and gold logo. The Great Taste scheme was launched in 1983 and is widely recognized as the benchmark for specialty food and drink, which is sold in the United Kingdom. Over 10,000 products attempt to win a one, two or even three-star award every year. As you can imagine, competition is fierce, with every entry facing a rigorous and extensive blind tasting process conducted by acknowledged industry experts. These include chefs, food buyers, critics and retailers. The testing takes place over several months, and eventually, all three-star winners are recalled for one final round.
Over the years, Nelstrop flours have consistently won Great Taste 3 Star Gold awards, the highest in Great Taste, which only about 200 food and drink products each year will win, from over 10,000 entries. In other words, Nelstrops flours have been consistently rated in the top 2% best tasting food and drink products in the UK.
This is something of which we are particularly proud, and we feel is both justified and deserved for the effort and commitment every member of our team puts into the preparation and production of our high-quality grains. Winning one Great Taste Award is an impressive achievement, but to do it multiple times and for numerous products is remarkable.
