Out of over 12,300 products to be judged, Stute Foods of Bristol was awarded a 2-star Great Taste award, which means judges dubbed it outstanding for its No Sugar Added Fine Cut Marmalade.

Judged by over 500 of the most demanding palates, belonging to food critics, chefs, cooks, restaurateurs and producers, as well as a whole host of food writers and journalists, Great Taste is widely acknowledged as the most respected food accreditation scheme for artisan and speciality food producers. As well as a badge of honour, the unmistakeable black and gold Great Taste label is a signpost to a wonderful tasting product, which has been discovered through hours and hours of blind-tasting by hundreds of judges.

“Having never entered the awards previously Stute Foods wanted to put its No Sugar Added Fine Cut Marmalade to the test against all major competitors in the market. It is a great achievement that we have been scored so highly for taste even though the product contains 90% less sugar than ordinary marmalades on the market”, explains Laurence Hybs, Stute Foods Managing Director. “We are over the moon to have been awarded a 2-star Great Taste Award for this product and hope this will add value to our brand both in the UK and Internationally.

Judges’ Comments below.

“Appearance is rich and golden orange. The peel is cut and cooked really well with a good amount of pith. The flavour is excellent - natural sweetness with a good bitterness from the pith. Left with a pleasant bitter, fruity tingle”.

“The orange colour is bright and clear, proportion of peel good. The set is good, the balance of flavours exceptional - good bitter flavour but with rear fruitiness and just enough sweetness”

Recognised as a stamp of excellence among consumers and retailers alike, Great Taste values taste above all else, with no regard for branding and packaging. Whether it is gin, biscuits, sausages or coffee being judged, all products are removed from their wrapper, jar, box or bottle before being tasted. The judges then savour, confer and re-taste to decide which products are worthy of a 1-, 2- or 3-star award.

Stute’s No Sugar Added Fine Cut Marmalade can be found in all major UK supermarkets and in over 45 countries around the world.
