We have just won 3 Gold Stars at this year’s Great Taste Awards, the Oscars of the food industry, beating off stiff competition from producers all over the UK. Gold Stars were awarded to our Cumbrian Air Dried Ham, Royale Air Dried Ham and Smoked Pancetta.
The feedback from the judges, who have amongst their numbers the top chefs, food writers and food lovers in the country, praised the excellent appearance, texture and flavours of the three products awarded; "the welcome salty sweetness" of the Cumbrian Ham, "the lingering hammy sweetness and melt in the mouth texture of Royale, and while the judges thought that the Smoked Pancetta was great from the pack, they felt it would be "stunning if cooked.
Over 10,000 products are entered into the Great Taste Awards from the UK and Ireland each year. Of this number only 3500 products are awarded.
The three winning Woodall’s products will now carry the Great Taste Award Gold Star accreditation on its packaging. This is a very useful selling tool for shoppers, as it is their guarantee that these are top quality products.
