Ah Ireland, you’ve done us proud. Our country’s finest food producers won big at this year’s Great Taste awards in London, with absolutely loads of our home-grown products receiving the coveted Great Taste 2014 label to proudly display on their packaging.

Look out for this in your local supermarket: it means whatever it is stuck to is DELICIOUS.

 

So, what won? Well, Aldi won big. They scooped the biggest amount of awards for an Irish supermarket, highlighting their commitment to utilising our best food producers in their products. Our top tips from their wins include O’Shea’s Traditional Irish Pale Ale, produced by The Carlow Brewing Company, which received two gold stars, Aldi’s Specially Selected Single Origin Ethiopian Coffee, produced by Bewley’s, which also received two gold stars and Aldi’s Specially Selected Irish Angus Fillet Steaks, produced by ABP Cahir, which received a gold star.

SuperValu were big winners too, winning 29 gongs for their Signature Tastes products; all of which come from artisan producers throughout the country. Their Signature Red Onion Relish, made in West Cork and Killowen Yoghurt, hailing from Waterford are our favourite products from the winners.

Donal Skehan’s Skoff Pies took home a gong, and quite right too – these pies are a fabulous example that mass producing should not mean lowering standards – these pies are YUM.

Bewleys accepted twelve gongs for their tea range, while Nobo dairy-free ice cream took home a gong for the second year in a row.

Well done Ireland!
