It is with great joy that I inform you of the official results of the GREAT TASTE AWARDS 2015, one of the biggest tasting competitions worldwide and organized by THE GUILD OF FINE FOOD in London, released on August 4th, 2015.
This is one of the most independent and credible competitions, with more than 450 expert panel tasters for this year alone and over 10,000 product samples to choose from, for a 6 month period of tasting.
This competition is considered “the Oscar of taste” worldwide while their gold stars are equivalent to the Michelin stars of awarded restaurants.
(“great taste is to speciality food and drink what MICHELIN is to fine dining” ).
