Taste Causeway businesses are submitting their applications for the Great Taste 2022 Awards, hoping to join the list of members who have already received the Great Taste stamp of quality in 2021.

“This is a great opportunity to put our food and drink in front of an independent panel of 500 experts to receive honest and impartial feedback from chefs, buyers, food writers and retailers”. 

“We were blown away by the success of our Taste Causeway members and their produce in the 2021 Great Taste Awards.

“We have such a varied range of the highest quality of local produce and we are confident in our member’s chances of winning the Great Taste seal of approval,” said Sharon Scott of Taste Causeway.

A highly respected seal of approval, the golden Great Taste logo not only gives producers well-deserved recognition but also assures customers of the high quality of each product. Between the eight local producers, Taste Causeway members amassed a total of 19 gold stars in 2021 alone.

Dundarave Estate received a total of 3 stars, one for each of their Apple Juice, Apple & Pear Juice and Apple Cider Vinegar.

Amazin Grazin won a gold star for their Wheaten Bread Mix, North Coast Chocolates received a gold star for their Chocolate Bonbon and Nua Kombucha was awarded one star for their Cardamom & Ginger flavoured drink. 

Causeway Coffee and Irish Black Butter have also been rewarded with a star each for their Ciara Coffee and Irish Black Butter Hazelnut Spread respectively. 

With 8 flavours submitted to the independent judging panel, Morelli’s have collected an astonishing 11 stars. Their Caramelised Hazelnut flavoured ice cream received 3 stars while their Clotted Cream with Amarena Cherry flavour won 2 Great Taste stars. 

“Following the great success of the previous year’s submissions, we want to encourage all Taste Causeway members to submit an application” she explained. 

The applications close midday on the 14th of February, with the results being announced later in the year, on 1st August 2022. 

Winners of the awards will receive the right to display the Great Taste logo on their product and for promotional purposes.
