Another Award-Winning Proudly Member!
We are tickled orange to hear that Happisburgh-based Ollands Farm Foods have just won two stars for their Seville Orange Marmalade at the prestigious Great Taste Awards 2017.
Great Taste, billed as ‘the world’s most coveted food awards’ celebrates the very best in food and drink. This is the first time Ollands Farm Foods has received Great Taste stars. – and being awarded two Great Taste stars, out of a possible three, means the judges dubbed the marmalade ‘outstanding’. It’s the first time in several years that a Norfolk marmalade has been recognised in this way.
Owner Mary Ann Stuart, is understandably thrilled:
“Out of over 12,300 products being judged, just over 1,000 received a 2-star award. The awards are judged by over 500 of the most demanding food critics, chefs, restaurateurs and food writers, so to be recognised in this way is really fantastic. We make all our products by hand in small batches in our own kitchen using traditional methods. It’s hard work, but it really pays off. We get lots of lovely comments from our regular customers, but it’s a nice bonus when that commitment to quality is recognised by industry greats.”
The award follows hot on the heels of multiple wins for Ollands at the World’s Original Marmalade Awards in March, where their Seville Orange Marmalade won a gold award.
“Customers are increasingly interested in where their food comes from and appreciate the attention to detail. Scooping this award will hopefully encourage even more people to give our marmalade a taste. We’re sure they won’t be disappointed!”
If you want to get your hands on this award winning produce, Ollands Farm Foods (ollands-farm-foods.co.uk) can be found at several farm shops and farmers’ markets around the county – and they will have a stand at the North Norfolk Food and Drink Festival at Holkham on the 2nd and 3rd of September.
