The judging panel consisted of Andrew Green, chief executive of the Craft Guild of Chefs – the leading chefs’ association in the UK; Matt Owens, vice chairman of the Craft Guild of Chefs and development chef for Alliance Pure South; and Jason Gordon, catering manager for the General Medical Council.

The judging was conducted in blind tastings and four of the products were deemed so good that they were awarded a ‘Best of the Best’ accolade.
