Dunnes Simply Better Wins 20 Awards At International Great Taste Awards
Dunnes Stores Simply Better took home 20 awards at the 2018 International Great Taste Awards.
Established in 1994, the Great Taste Awards featured over 12,000 products, which were blind-tasted by a panel of industry experts, including acclaimed chefs, restaurateurs and food critics, to find the best tasting entries.
Winning a 3 Star Award was the Dunnes Stores Simply Better Handmade Irish Smoked Trout Pâté, created in Co. Wexford by Zanna Cookhouse exclusively for the Simply Better Collection.
“The pâté is made using Irish smoked trout farmed by Mags Kirwan on Goatsbridge Trout Farm in Co. Kilkenny, where the naturally clear waters produce a Rainbow Trout with exceptional flavour. This is then gently combined with Irish cream cheese, crème fraiche, lemon and dill for an award winning taste,” said Diarmuid Murphy, brand manager, Simply Better.
Also recognised at the international awards were Miena’s Handmade Nougat, Skeaghanore Duck and Seery’s Bakery who all won 2 star awards for the products they produce for the Simply Better collection.
All 3 Star winning products, including the Simply Better Handmade Irish Smoked Trout Pâté, will be put forward for the much sought after Great Taste Golden Fork Awards which will be announced in September.
