Great Taste Awards 2023: Honestly Tasty Triumphs

The results of the Great Taste Awards 2023 were announced yesterday, and we’re thrilled to share that three of our best-selling cheeses have scooped up the prestigious stars! Our best-selling vegan Blue was awarded two stars, with Bree and Shamembert each earning their own star.

When we started Honestly Tasty, our mission was to challenge the stereotypes surrounding vegan cheese and to offer a product that rivals traditional dairy-based cheeses in taste, texture, and overall experience. Winning these awards is not just an achievement; it’s a significant milestone that we hope signals a shift in perception towards plant-based products - full of flavour, freed from dairy!

What Are the Great Taste Awards?

The Great Taste Awards, often referred to as the ‘Oscars’ of the food world, are organised by the Guild of Fine Food. They aim to recognise and celebrate the finest in food and drink from across the globe. Entries are meticulously judged by panels of experts, including top chefs, food writers, and industry leaders, in a process that spans several months. Products are evaluated solely on taste, without consideration for branding or packaging, ensuring that the awards commend the very best in flavour, craftsmanship, and culinary excellence.

These awards offer an independent endorsement of quality, highly respected by retailers, buyers, and consumers alike. Winning a Great Taste star can significantly elevate a brand’s profile, providing winners with a mark of distinction that is recognised universally in the gourmet food industry.

Our Journey to Great Taste

The recognition we’ve received at the Great Taste Awards underscores our commitment to excellence and innovation in the vegan cheese sector. Each of our awarded cheeses—Blue, Bree, and Shamembert—has been crafted to deliver a unique and satisfying experience, appealing not just to vegans but to cheese lovers everywhere.

As we continue to grow and evolve, these awards inspire us to keep pushing the boundaries of what plant-based cheese can be. We are more motivated than ever to develop new flavours and products that live up to the prestigious reputation of the Great Taste accolade.

Looking Forward

We invite you to experience the award-winning taste that has made Honestly Tasty a standout in the plant-based community. Whether you are a long-time fan or new to our products, we look forward to bringing you along on our journey of taste and innovation.

As we look to the future, we remain dedicated to crafting cheeses that not only taste great but also contribute to a sustainable and ethical food system. Join us as we continue to challenge expectations and change perceptions, one delicious bite at a time.
