Full List of Northern Ireland Great Taste Award Winners 2014

Northern Ireland Winners

The 2014 Great Taste Award winners were announced this week and Irish food has again proven it being excellent quality product by claiming more of the prestigious Gold stars than ever before!



405 judges including leading retail buyers, chefs and food writers were involved in the seven-week judging process that involved over 10,000 individual products from the UK and Republic of Ireland. 

This year’s awards also included the first-ever judging session to be held in Belfast. I was delighted to be asked to be one of the judges and I spent a very interesting three days in Belfast working with some wonderful people who are simply and totally passionate about food.


What the stars mean:
Three Stars – Sensational food and drink that has to be tasted
Two Stars – Faultless food and drink
One Star – Close to perfect

This year eleven Northern Irish Food Producers claimed a total of eighteen 3-Gold Stars. They are:
Baronscourt Estate, Donegal Rapeseed Oil (Castlederg), Ewing Seafoods, Flossie’s Fudge, Greenmount Meats, K&G McAtamney, Hannan Meats, Maud’s Ice Cream, Quail’s Fine Foods, Suki Teahouse, Thompson’s Family Teas
