In January we proudly became a Producer Member of The Guild of Fine Food.
The Guild was formed in 1995 with a mission to support and encourage artisan food and drink producers and the independent delicatessens, farm shops and food halls that mainly stock and sell their food and drink.
With over 1,300 members across the UK, the Guild organises and implements a network of activities designed to promote excellence in all sectors of the trade and build closer links between producers and retailers.
The Guild of Fine Food is also the organisation that publishes Fine Food Digest, Good Cheese, Best Brands and Great Taste Book, the industry’s leading magazines. They organise Great Taste and the World Cheese Awards, run the Fine Food Show North and a number of Great Taste Markets.
Following fantastic feedback from our customers we have entered four products into the 2020 Great taste Awards;
Great Taste is the world's largest and most trusted food and drinks awards.
Our products will be put to the test by a subset of a panel from 550 experts who will taste each product and provide honest, straight forward and impartial feedback. The panel will comprise of chefs, buyers, food writers and retailers.
All 13,000 products entered are fastidiously blind-tasted over a period of 70 days. The judges are looking for truly great taste, regardless of branding or packing. Judging takes place from March until mid-June.
It's all about the STARS!
Every product entered could be awarded a star or more. Products could receive a 1, 2 or 3 star accolade or nothing at all so we have everything crossed for our entries!!
Results are released in August, once all products have been judged.
In September the top regional and special awards – The Golden Fork Awards, are announced at a dinner at the Intercontinental Park Lane Hotel, London.
Will keep you posted on how our products performed in August!
Chilli Pot Food Company is very excited to announce that we will be collaborating with Pasture Fire Kitchen Garden to source a number of exclusive chillies for 2020. These chillies are generally not currently available to the general public to buy which gives us a fantastic opportunity to showcase the chillies, their rich flavours and culinary versatility to our customers alike.
From spring 2020 onwards we will be introducing a new range of jams, marmalades, salad sauces and hot marinades using these exclusives and chillies from our own home grown range, which will be available to buy through the chillipotfoodcompany online shop
