Welcome to Great Taste

What is Great Taste?

Great Taste, organised by the Guild of Fine Food, is the acknowledged benchmark for speciality food and drink. It has been described as the ‘Oscars’ of the food world and the ‘epicurean equivalent of the Booker prize’. Quite simply the Great Taste logo is the sign you can trust when buying food and drink in your local, quality retailer.

How does it all work?

405 judges including 38 specially trained coordinating food writers inputting judges’ comments over 50 judging days from May through to the last week in July including a week in Ireland, three days at the Royal Garden Hotel in London, specialist test centres for tea, filter coffee, espresso and olive oil with the remainder done at Guild HQ in Dorset.

Why enter the awards?

Winning is important to the producers as it differentiates their products from the norm and means you, as the customer, have a guarantee that the products you buy have a reliable seal of approval based upon great taste and not marketing.

Who are the winners?


Our winners are all passionate people who care about the quality of food they produce. Those producers entered nearly 10,000 products with only 125 foods achieving the three gold stars. Didn’t they do well?
