Since 1994 when the awards first began, Great Taste has established itself as one of the most respected and widely recognised symbols of quality in the world of speciality food and drink.

Edward Berry comments on the announcement; "I am thrilled for our teams who work so hard perfecting their recipes. 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."
