No we haven’t teamed up with Spandau Ballet just yet … but we are amongst the Great Taste GOLD winners of 2018!!
Great Taste, the world’s most coveted food awards, which celebrates the very best in food and drink, has announced the Great Taste stars of 2018. Out of over 12,600 products to be judged, Hunter & Gather have received 2 GOLD awards both the Classic Avocado Oil Mayo and the Extra Virgin Avocado Oil. Can I get a hell yeah!?
Here are some of the comments from the judges!
“A really lovely deep colour and a glossy shine to give it appeal. The texture was silky and smooth”
“Tastes fresh and natural. Citrussy, nutty and homemade-style”
“...buttery notes throughout with a gentle peppery mid palate”
“Rich green colour”
“The taste is very smooth and buttery with a very subtle flavour”
Judged by over 500 of the most demanding palates, belonging to food critics, chefs, cooks, restaurateurs and producers, as well as a whole host of food writers and journalists, Great Taste is widely acknowledged as the most respected food accreditation scheme for artisan and speciality food producers. As well as a badge of honour, the unmistakeable black and gold Great Taste label is a signpost to a wonderful tasting product, which has been discovered through hours and hours of blind-tasting by hundreds of judges.
Recognised as a stamp of excellence among consumers and retailers alike, Great Taste values taste above all else, with no regard for branding and packaging. Whether it is vinegar, granola, bacon or cheese being judged, all products are removed from their wrapper, jar, box or bottle before being tasted. The judges then savour, confer and re-taste to decide which products are worthy of a 1-, 2- or 3-star award.
The panel of judges this year included; MasterChef 2018 champion, Kenny Tutt, chef and food writer, Elly Curshen, eco chef and food writer, Tom Hunt, author and chef, Zoe Adjonyoh, baker Tom Herbert, author and blogger, Izy Hossack, and baker and recipe writer, Martha Collison, as well as food buyers from Harrods, Selfridges and Sourced Market.
We are so excited by this we are now going to put on our leg warmers and dance around the room singing GOLD at the top of our voices!
