Great Taste 2014 reveals new stars and Maryó Artisan Products is a winner.
The world’s largest blind-tasted food awards Great Taste, has just released the stars of 2014 and Maryó Artisan Products is among the producers celebrating as our Premium Extra Virgin Olive Oil is now able to proudly carry the little gold and black Great Taste logo.
Judged by over 400 of the most demanding palates belonging to food critics, chefs, cooks, members of the Women’s Institute, farmers and a host of food writers and journalists, Great Taste is widely acknowledged as the most respected food accreditation scheme for artisan and specialty food producers. When a product wears a Great Taste label it carries a badge of honor but more importantly, the Great Taste logo is a signpost to a wonderful tasting product – and hundreds of judges have worked hard to discover the very best through hours and hours of blind-tasting a total of 10,000 different foods and drink.
Great Taste is simply about taste, not clever branding or smart packaging. Judges are presented with a spoonful of jam, a glass with olive oil, a slice of salami, or a cup of espresso, with no wrappings, jars or marks – and they taste, confer and re-taste before making the decision on whether a product should be a winner. In total more than 12 judges will have tasted and commented on each product.
“When we started our journey in the culinary world, we were well aware that we wanted to sign products prepared with special care, love and commitment to the best production methods. Our passion about food and the need for great taste and excellent quality lead us to Agarathos monastery in Crete for our first product.
We thought of participating in Great Taste Awards to challenge ourselves and Maryó premium extra virgin olive oil, and to confirm by specialists what we and our customers always knew.
Maryó Premium Extra Virgin Olive Oil is of great taste and excellent quality!
This award gives us the opportunity to introduce ourselves and our product to a broader audience. It is an invitation to try and celebrate with us the great taste of Maryó premium extra virgin olive oil.”
