We're delighted to share that we have received further accolades for two of our products in the Great Taste Awards.
Stars were awarded for our Yorkshire grain fed whole chicken and for our Yorkshire chicken supreme after going through rounds of blind-taste testing.
The Great Taste awards are organised by the Guild of Fine Food and this year attracted a record 12,772 entries that were judged by 500 industry specialists from top chefs to fine food retailers. It is widely acknowledged as the benchmark for artisan and speciality food producers.
Due to the success of our chicken, both in this year’s competition and in previous years, we can use the coveted Great Taste Producer logo for multiple wins in successive years.
Our Head of Sales and Marketing Ben Lee said: “We are delighted to have added to our string of stars from Great Taste as, not only is it a validation of our quality by industry professionals, but they represent an assurance to the customer that the product is exceptionally tasty.
“We put huge amounts of effort into rearing the birds for excellent taste and these accolades make our hard work even more worthwhile.”
Judges' feedback for the chicken supreme included ‘Succulent and tender with a delicate authentic chicken flavour with a clean and fresh finish on the palate. Melt in the mouth texture. Really enjoyable supreme.’
With the whole chicken, they remarked on the ‘Great aroma, rich and enticing’ and the ‘Good, well coloured skin’. They concluded: ‘We enjoyed this chicken.’
