Taste of the West Gold Awards 2020

Taste of the West Gold Awards 2020

We’ve won Two Taste of the West Gold Awards 2020!

Hurrah we’ve won two Gold Awards at the 2020 Taste of the West awards for our new for 2020 Pink Champagne Truffles and our Sea Salt Praline Bar.

In this strangest of years it would be fair to say that winning awards hasn’t been paramount in our mind. Nonetheless when Taste of the West reopened the final phase of the Taste of the West awards 2020 we decided to enter two chocolates into the awards – our new Pink Champagne Truffles and our Sea Salt Praline Bar. We were delighted to hear this week that both  had won a Gold Award!

We’ve entered the Taste of the West awards many times since we started in 2006 and always try to enter different products each year. We have been fortunate to win many awards over the years including overall Supreme Champion 2016 and Champion Chocolate for the last five years in a row!

In normal years the highest scoring Gold Award winners would be entered into a further round of judging to determine the overall category champion, and then finally the overall Supreme Champion. But it is uncertain what will happen this year.

The full list of 2020 Taste of the West Award winners is now available on their website.

The annual Taste of the West Awards scheme, which has grown over the last two and a half decades to become the UK’s largest regional food and drink awards programme, helps food and drink businesses in the South West to thrive and succeed. 

Taste of the West chief executive John Sheaves said of the 2020 awards…

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
