Redhill Farm Free Range Pork Loin wins prestigious Golden Fork Award at Great Taste Awards.
Redhill Farm Free Range Loin of Pork has been judged to be the number one speciality food in the Midlands and East Anglia region in the 2014 Great Taste Awards, the world’s largest and most rigorous food awards scheme involving over 400 judges and thousands of hours of blind tasting.
A distinguished panel of judges including Sheila Dillon, Presenter of BBC Radio 4 Food Programme and Food Critic and journalist, Charles Campion, blind-tasted in teams to ensure a balance of expertise, age and gender, and commented:
”Lovely looking rack of pork. Golden skin and savoury aromas. The texture is very tender and it carves very well. The fat is nice and sweet and the crackling came up very well. Full ﬂavoured pork as it should be.” The judges also awarded it a 3 star Gold and selected it as one of the Top 50 Foods in Britain before nominating it for a prestigious Golden Fork Award.
The Great Taste Awards are renowned as the Fine Food Oscars and the 3 star-system is their equivalent of Michelin Stars for food producers. Of the 10,000 entries submitted this year, 153 were awarded the ultimate three-star gold with only 9 Golden Forks awarded for Best Regional Speciality. The judging is a lengthy process – everything is blind tasted by knowledgeable teams of judges. Great Taste is simply about taste and quality.
