~ Connacht Gold Garlic & Herb butter achieves gold at Food Oscars ~
Connacht Gold has struck gold once again at the internationally recognised Great Taste Awards 2015, achieving another coveted gold star for its Garlic and Herb butter.
The Connacht Gold Garlic and Herb Butter was selected for a gold star from over 10,000 food products entered by over 2,000 companies across Europe.
Judged by over 400 of the most demanding palates belonging to food critics, chefs, cooks, members of the Women’s Institute, farmers and a host of food writers and journalists, Great Taste is widely acknowledged as the most respected food accreditation scheme for artisan and speciality food producers.
Speaking about Connacht Gold’s Garlic and Herb butter, the panel of judges complimented the product for its appearance and taste. “A neat oblong shape, good colour to the butter, fresh parsley and tarragon are well distributed. Fresh aroma; we liked the level of garlic which is not bitter. It is well seasoned and the butter is quite fresh and not oily, the seasoning well balanced, a slight acidity on the finish. A decent garlic butter for a steak.”
Commenting on the accolades Seamus Hannon, National Account Manager, Aurivo Consumer Foods said, “It is an honour to once again be recognised by these prestigious food awards. We are very proud of the quality of the Connacht Gold butter products, and it’s fitting that each year our products excel at both domestic and international food awards”.
“With an award winning range of Low Fat, baking, gourmet and savoury products, Connacht Gold’s butter brand continues to grow as consumers put taste and quality to the top of their shopping list” commented Lydia Rogers, Aurivo Communications and Brand manager.
This accolade is the second consecutive Great Taste Award for Connacht Gold’s Garlic and Herb butter, and its fourth award overall – it was also recipients of a Blas na hEireann award for Best New Product a number of years ago.
