Awards 2013

We are so pleased to have been recognised for excellence by such prestigious organisations as the Soil Association and The Taste of the West. So we thought we'd share some information on the winning products and what the awards stand for. We are thrilled that our time, effort and commitment to taste has paid off to produce products that are worthy of these awards!

Eccles Cakes: Soil Association Organic Food Awards GOLD

These Eccles Cakes truly are an authentic taste of Lancashire. With every cake being made by hand, plump vine fruits are encased in the flakiest of butter pastry's. Packed with sticky fruits and spices, homely flavours are what makes this traditional recipe so memorable.

Chocolate Torte: Taste of the West Awards GOLD

Our flour-less Chocolate torte is filled with ground almonds and decadently rich in West Country butter and the finest organic chocolate. More of a pudding than a cake, this delicious dessert is perfect for any celebration or even just a cup of tea and a bit of `me time’! 

Winners of this year’s Soil Association Organic Food Awards, supported by Seeds of Change, were announced on 19th September 2013 celebration in central London.  The awards showcase the UK’s best organic food produced with passion, creativity and care.  
Now in their 27th year, the Organic Food Awards blow the trumpet for the best of the best. These are the producers who go the extra mile.

Speaking at the event, Helen Browning, chief executive of the Soil Association said: “This year’s Organic Food Award winners prove there is even more to their products than fantastic taste. Organic food producers champion health, and new solutions to the challenge of caring for people, farm animals and wildlife, while feeding an ever growing population. I am thrilled that there were so many entries this year, reflecting recent research showing an overall return to growth in the organic market. The judges were often hard-pressed to make a decision in many categories as the quality was so high.”  

Out of a hugely impressive 1040 products entered into the Taste of the West awards, 166 won a Gold Award, 216 were awarded a Silver Award and 213 were given a Bronze Award.

Taste of the West is renowned for recognising excellence and dedication throughout the food and drink industry. Commenting on behalf of this highly respected organisation, chief executive John Sheaves said: “We continue to be astounded by the quality of the produce coming out of the West Country.  There is no surprise that the region is increasingly being recognised internationally as a key player in terms of food and drink.”  John continues: “These awards reflect this and give the top products the recognition they deserve.”
