Judging Week 2017

Thank you for entering your products into the 2017 Taste Awards

Below are some instructions about submitting your products for judging which this year will take place on:

Tuesday 5th, Wednesday 6th and Thursday 7th September.

What to Send
For each product you have entered please send 3 samples** of that product for the judging process. (i.e 3 bottles of beer, 3 packets of sausages, 3 individual pork pies, 3 jars of pickle, 3 tubs of ice cream etc)

At least one of these samples needs include the whole packaging as it would be sold to the customer, so the judges can consider the design and suitability of the packaging should your entry progress to the Supreme Product stage.

** If you have entered a spirit, you will only need to submit one bottle**

Where and when to send it

Ideally we would like products to be delivered to us asap.  However, if your products are fresh and you intend to deliver them on the day of the judging please have them with us by no later than 9am.  Late entries will not be able to be included in the judging.

Preparing your entires

It is important that your products are prepared for the judges in the correct way to show them at their best.  If your entry requires cooking or serving in a particular way please let us know either by email or by including a note in with the entry (ie timings / temperatures etc) If your product requires other ingredients (ie if you have entered a meat rub / paste that will need a piece of meat for it to be demonstrated on) please submit these additional ingredients along with your entries.
