It is with great pleasure that Copas Traditional Turkeys can announce that they have been awarded a 3 Gold Star rating at the Great Taste Awards for their Traditional White Turkeys.
Organised by The Guild of Fine Food, the Great Taste Awards (GTAs) are one of the national benchmark food awards, employing the country’s most rigorous judging system and ensuring the fairest, most accurate and most trusted results.
Of the 8807 entries, only 123 products - including Copas Traditional Turkeys - received three Gold Star award status, and as such are now in the running for next month’s ‘Golden Fork’ Awards in London and the naming of the Great Taste Supreme Champion.
The 2012 Great Taste Awards attracted a record number of entries. In total, 8807 food and drink products were blind-tasted, tested and discussed during 45 days of intense judging. Judges during this year’s Great Taste included Masterchef winner and restaurateur Mat Follas, restaurant critic Charles Campion and food writers Lucas Hollweg and Xanthe Clay, as well as more than 300 food buyers from leading food halls, delicatessens and farm shops across the country.
The Copas Traditional Turkeys team, based in Cookham, Berkshire, are delighted that their Turkeys have been placed among the country’s most highly rated food produce. Ed Hurford, General Manager, says of their success “This Great Taste Award for 3 Gold Stars is a wonderful accolade to achieve and we are delighted to be in such prestigious company with the other 122 winners. Our customers know that our Traditional Turkeys are the best in market, and this GTA award confirms that adhering to exacting standards in welfare and production proves its worth in the end taste’.
