Killowen Farm Scoops Six Great Taste Awards

We’re celebrating the news our yogurt has wowed the judges in Great Taste Awards 2013 by being awarded gold stars for six different products – in the world’s largest and most rigorous food awards scheme involving over 400 judges and thousands of hours of blind tasting.

The Great Taste Awards are simply about taste, not clever branding or smart packaging. Judges are presented with, for example, a piece of cheese, a pie or a little dish of chutney, with no wrappings, jars or marks – and they taste, confer and re-taste before making the decision on whether a product should be a 1-, 2- or 3-star winner. In total more than 12 judges will have tasted and commented on each product.

“We have won many Great Taste Awards over the years,” commented Pauline Dunne, Sales Manager, “however this year was our best ever result, with six of our yogurts winning awards. We are constantly striving so that our products are the highest quality and truly reflect our wonderful locality . We have been sourcing as much fruit here in Wexford as possible and the fact that our Wexford Blackcurrant yogurt won two stars is a real endorsement of our ethos.

Winning a Great Taste Award is of also of real commercial value to our business, as retailers respect the Awards and customers respond positively to products which display the Great Taste logo”.
