Top Herd wins two GREAT TASTE AWARDS

July 2016

Last week the wonderful people at the ‘Great Taste Awards’ emailed us to let us know that we had won two awards; one was for our Tangy Tomato Beef Jerky and the other was for our Honey Mustard Pork Jerky. After all our hard work and determination to create a really healthy snack, that also tasted delicious, we were delighted to have won a place on the winners podium.

So, what is Great Taste and why is it such a big deal? 

Great Taste first started in 1994 and since then more than 100,000 products have been blind tasted by expert judges who discuss the merits of each product in their search for those that deserve to be championed and garnered with the Great Taste logo. Competition is fierce and of all the products that are entered only a select few in each category walk away with an award. 

Great Taste is not about smart packaging, clever branding, or even health. It’s simply about ‘taste’ – the kind that stops you in your tracks and makes you go WOW!

The judges are made up of top chefs and restaurateurs who know their onions. People who run delis and farm shops, top food hall and retail buyers, acclaimed cooks, food writers and journalists, jam and cake experts from the WI, cheese makers and farmers. 

This is what these expert foodies said about our Tangy Tomato Beef Jerky.

Lovely aroma and good depth of flavours. We found a lovely sweetness coming through. The beef softens nicely in the mouth. The tomato adds sweetness and the overall marries well together”.

This is what they said about our Honey Mustard Pork Jerky

A chewy, flavoursome pork jerky which softens well in the mouth and develops some good meaty character. The honey and mustard both work well”. They described both flavours as “simply delicious”.

Look out for the logo on certain products when you are next doing your weekly shop and feel guaranteed that the food and drink displaying the logo will be yummy – the foodie experts have spoken!
