Receiving a Great Taste Award is an accolade that they all strive for - especially as it’s such a universally known logo that customers seek out on our shelves. With awards spanning our bakery, butchery, coffee roasting and preserves departments – this is an achievement that everyone can share and enjoy. We hope that people will be tempted to sample our superb range of Great Taste produce made here at Ludlow Food Centre."
