Local producer’s marmalade wins Great Taste Awards
Proudly Norfolk producer, Ollands Farm Foods, is celebrating success at the prestigious Great Taste Awards 2018 after two of their marmalades have been recognised. This year, their King Harry Marmalade and Norfolk Saffron Marmalade both received one of the coveted stars.
Over 12,600 products were judged by more than 500 of the most demanding palates in the industry including MasterChef 2018 winner, Kenny Tutt, chef and food writer, Elly Curshen and author and blogger Izy Hossack. Food buyers from Harrods, Selfridges and Sourced Market also took part in the blind tasting.
The Great Taste Awards have been described as the ‘Oscars’ of the food world, celebrating the very best in food and drink. So, winning a star really is quite the accolade!
Ollands really are building up their collection of Great Taste Awards; last year the Happisburgh-based producers received two stars for their Seville Orange Marmalade. This year’s wins, however, are particularly special as both the Norfolk Saffron Marmalade and King Harry Marmalade are part of their new Connoisseur Collection, launched earlier this year. Their new collection is proving a triumph - with the Great Taste Awards following hot on the heels of bronze awards for both marmalades at this year’s World’s Original Marmalade Awards.
Ollands have collaborated with local grower, Norfolk Saffron, to create their latest award-winning marmalades. The Norfolk Saffron Marmalade is described as a rich and unique lemon and orange marmalade infused with Saffron. King Harry marmalade is a lemon and orange-based marmalade made with Norfolk Saffron’s King Harry Liqueur.
Ollands Farm Foods handmade products can be found at several farm shops across Norfolk, and at selected farmer’s markets. You can also order online. Visit their website ollands-farm-foods.co.uk for more details.
