Taste of the West, the South West’s prestigious food, drink and hospitality awards, has announced its winners of 2020. With over 700 products to judge across the West Country, Good Game has been awarded five gold awards; Organic Culatello, Organic Lomo, Organic Coppa, Salami and Pepperoni.
Judged by the most astute palates of chefs, restauranteurs, buyers, retailers and food writers, Taste of the West is renowned for being the most respected accreditation for artisan producers, cafés and restaurants. The unmistakable logo is a clear signal for an outstanding product that has met rigorous judging criteria on texture, appearance, quality ingredients and flavour.
John Sheaves, Chief Executive of Taste of the West, commented “This year we are particularly pleased that given the difficulties the sector has faced with the Covid-19 crisis, the level of innovation in product development has been higher than usual. Through our experience of running the UK’s largest regional food and drink awards programme, our aim is to raise the bar in terms of excellence. In this way, we know that we can offer a product to a discerning consumer market which has been thoroughly tested and evaluated. So far, and there is still some way to go yet, we have seen a very high standard in food products.”
Steve Williams, Good Game Co-Director, says: “Taste of the West represents some of the most outstanding produce across the Westcountry, so we are beyond delighted to stand out with five gold awards. We’re proud to carry the sticker on our products as a mark of a high-quality product.”
The awards celebrate quality, integrity and provenance of food in the West and seek to promote local produce that goes above and beyond in terms of quality and taste.
Good Game products can be found in good independent retailers, such as Darts Farm, or available online at good-game.co.uk.
