Great Taste is the largest, most trusted accreditation for artisan and speciality foods. Products go through a rigorous judging process, involving blind-tastings by panels of top chefs, cookery writers, restaurateurs, food critics and fine food retailers, and only those that meet their very high standards are awarded one-, two-, or three-stars. Quite simply, the Great Taste logo is the symbol you can trust when buying food and drink in any quality retailer across the globe.
