Here on the farm we are celebrating the happy news that we have achieved our best ever results at the Great Taste Awards 2014. Organised by the Guild of Fine Food in Britain, it’s the acknowledged benchmark for speciality food and drink. Nearly 10,000 products were assessed by 405 judges over 50 judging days here and in the UK.
Among this year’s successful entrants are 10 products made on Wexford’s Killowen Farm. The Wexford Blackcurrant, Lemon Curd and Blueberry glass jar yogurts were all awarded 2 Gold Stars, while the Strawberry and Wexford Rhubarb flavours won 1 Gold Star each. Four yogurts produced by Killowen for Dunnes Stores, Aldi and Super Valu won 7 gold stars, along a Gold Star for Dunnes Simply Better Whiskey Cream, with bringing the Farm’s overall tally to 16 Gold Stars for 10 products.
“Considering that only 50 yogurts in the UK and Ireland achieved Gold Stars, we are very proud that almost a fifth of these are produced right here on Killowen Farm”, explains Pauline Dunne, Sales Manager. “We constantly strive to produce the highest quality, best-tasting yogurt, and to have it independently judged in such a demanding environment as the Great Taste Awards is a real acid test”.
For anyone who wants to try our yogurts we will have a stand the National Ploughing Championships in Ratheniska, Co. Laois this September 23rd-25th, and we looking forward to welcoming you there!
