The Nut Kitchen SCOOPS 5 Great Taste 2017 AWARDS
We are absolutely going nuts as five of our products were awarded Great Taste stars by the Guild of Fine Food. Having launched only a year ago, and having joined the awards for the first time, we couldn't be more thrilled.
Top marks for our Pistachio Paste for achieving 3 stars and being picked as one of Top 50 Foods for 2017. It was also nominated as Best Imported Food in the Golden Fork Awards. Judges described it as "having a wonderful aroma...really deep intensity with pure fresh pistachio flavour...warm sunny layers of flavour...great, pure, natural..with an admirable show of restraint and treatment...concentrated loveliness."
Not to be outdone, our Hazelnut Paste won 2 stars while our Hazelnut Spread, Gianduia Spread and Almond Spread won 1 star each.
Not bad for a first time!
Here's what our founders have to say:
"We are delighted with the award. Its the best possible affirmation we could get that our products deliver their promise. Molto bene!" - Carmelo
"From what started as a nutty idea, it's incredible that we have accomplished this within a year o f launching. Being a startup has brought challenges and rewards in equal amounts, working with our local growers during harvest in the selection process of the nuts. Keeping the artisan hand processing, roasting and milling traditions alive really adds to the joy in the day to day work". - George
Great Taste Awards
The Great Taste Awards is organised by the Guild of Fine Food and are seen as the "Oscars" of the food and drink industry. Over 400 judges from all over the world blind tasted 12,366 food and drink products this year of which only 165 were awarded 3 stars. Receiving three stars means “Exquisite. Wow! Taste That” and is the highest award given. Products with the award mean that customers are guaranteed a reliable seal of approval based on great taste and not packaging or anything else.
