7 Irish Products in UK Top 50 Foods

“Great Taste” is considered the biggest independent benchmarking scheme for local, regional and speciality foods in Britain and has been running since 1994. Over 350 professional foodies are brought together each year to take part in 45 days of judging, deciding which foods deserve one-star, two-star or the ultimate three-star awards. 


The Top 50 Foods is a definitive list of the greatest food and drink available from fine food retailers across the UK and Ireland available in Britain.
