Fused has scooped two awards at the prestigious 2022 Great Taste Awards, the world’s largest food and drinks accreditation scheme based entirely on taste. Our two winning products are Fused Cheeky Chilli Soy Sauce and Fused Chow Mein Stir Fry Sauce.
We are thrilled that the quality and flavour of our products to be recognised by such an esteemed awards and judging panel. This recent win adds to the 5 awards we won at the Irish Quality Food and Drink Awards and UK Quality Food Awards in 2021.
Recognised as a stamp of excellence and actively sought out by food lovers and retailers alike, Great Taste, organised by the Guild of Fine Food, values taste above all else. All products in the line-up for judging are blind-tasted: every product is removed from its packaging so it cannot be identified, before entering a robust, layered judging process.
This year, there were more than 14,000 Great Taste entries overall, including food and drink from 110 countries. The 14,205 entries were blind judged by a panel of 500 industry professionals over 90 days at venues in London and Dorset.
Great Taste’s prestigious judging panel included critics, chefs, recipe creators, buyers, retailers, journalists, broadcasters, and experts in the field. 2022’s judging line-up included head buyers from Selfridges, Whole Foods, Fortnum & Mason and Waitrose, BBC Good Food editor Keith Kendrick, delicious. editor Karen Barnes, Bake Off contestant and author Chetna Makan, MasterChef Professionals finalist Santosh Shah, food and drink consultant Mallika Basu, BBC’s Nigel Barden, national television presenters Lotte Duncan and Juliet Sear, restaurateurs Kavi Thakrar (Dishoom) and Amy Poon (Poon’s), journalists including Felicity Cloake (The Guardian), Xanthe Clay (Telegraph) and Joanna Blythman (multiple national titles), as well food writers Gill Meller, Melissa Thompson, and Georgina Hayden among many others. This experienced panel, each with trusted palates, have together tasted and re-judged the 3-star winning products to crown the Golden Fork trophy winners as well as the Great Taste 2022 Supreme Champion.
