Following 14 weeks of judging, the results of the Great Taste Awards have been released, providing a boost for the industry in the all-important run-up to Christmas.

Building upon the recent increase in trade for both regional food producers and retailers — one of the few good news stories during lockdown — the Great Taste results aim to help stimulate much-needed consumer support for independent retail and hospitality over the coming months.  

The results come later than usual, with lockdown delaying the judging of a record-breaking 12,777 entries from 106 different countries.
