2014 Great Taste Awards Winners

We are pleased to announce that our Sea Salt & Aspall Cyder Vinegar, Farmhouse Cheese & Chive and Sweet Chilli crisps have all been recognised in the 2014 Great Taste Awards, and have each received one coveted star.

The Great Taste Awards are organised by the Guild of Fine Food, and are acknowledged as the benchmark for speciality food and drink. Over 400 judges, including 40 specially trained food writers inputting judges’ comments, come together at 50 judging days from April through to mid-July to judge over 10,000 food and drink products. These judges, from all corners of the food world, blind-taste in teams of 4 or 5 ensuring a balance of expertise, age and gender. The awards have been described as the ‘Oscars’ of the food world and the ‘epicurean equivalent of the Booker prize’. Further information on the awards can be found on their website, here.

Fairfields have a strong history with the Great Taste Awards, picking up multiple awards from 2008 onwards. However, 2014 now ties with 2011 for our most successful year, with three of our flavours being deemed worthy of recognition. We would like to convey our thanks to the panel of judges for recognising the care and dedication that we put into ensuring every packet of Fairfields Farm Crisps is of the highest possible quality, and reassure our customers we have no intention of resting on our laurels, and aim to achieve even more success in future years.
