Two Cornish producers triumphed this week at the Taste of the West Awards held at Gloucestershire Cricket Club.
The 166 Gold award-winning products from the recent Taste of the West Product Awards were judged for a second time to identify the winners of 22 ‘Best Of’ category awards.
In the ‘Ready Meals, Soup & Light Eats’ category, Cornish Charcuterie was awarded the ‘Best Of’ accolade for its Pork Rillette, while The Cornish Duck Company’s Duck Burger received the ‘Best Of’ award in the ‘Burgers, Faggots & Meatballs’ section.
Hospitality and Retail Awards were awarded to The Cornish Pizza Company, which was named ‘Best South West Local Food Takeaway’ and Wing of St Mawes, which was awarded ‘Best South West Online Retailer’.
Taste of the West chief executive, John Sheaves, said: “Cornwall produces food and drink of an exceptionally high quality and continues to thrive in the Taste of the West Awards.
“For a county to win two ‘Best Of’ category awards and two Hospitality and Retail Awards is an excellent achievement. Our congratulations go to all the Cornish award winners on their outstanding success at this year’s awards.”
