Described as “a really enjoyable bacon that is brilliantly balanced and well produced… The judges loved the cure flavour and smokiness and found this very high-quality bacon”. 4,088 products were awarded a Great Taste 1-star – ‘food and drink that delivers fantastic flavour’, 1,568 were awarded a Great Taste 2-star – ‘above and beyond delicious’, and 248 were awarded a Great Taste 3-star – ‘extraordinarily tasty food and drink’.
