New Forest Ice Cream Scoops Gold with Double Success in Great Taste Awards 2014
For the third consecutive year, New Forest Ice Cream has scooped a handful of prestigious Gold Star ratings in the Great Taste Awards. With over 10,000 entries, the Great Taste Awards is widely recognised throughout the industry as a key mark of outstanding quality. This year, it was New Forest Ice Cream’s Mojito Sorbet that blew the judges away achieving a highly acclaimed two Gold Stars, while the Coconut Ice Cream variety was awarded an outstanding one Gold Star.
Judged alongside premium food and drink brands from producers across the UK, just 25% of entries were thought worthy of a Gold Star rating, while just 8% of entries received two or three of the esteemed ratings, including the delicious Mojito Sorbet from New Forest Ice Cream.
Making the latest news even more impressive is the fact that, 2014 is the third consecutive year that the Hampshire based firm has been judged amongst top brands in the UK at the awards, as Christina Veal, Director of New Forest Ice Cream, explains:
“Having previously received five Gold Star statuses for various products in the Great Taste Awards 2012 and 2013, we were fully aware of the high standard of judging posed by the award. To now have achieved recognition for two more of our products, including a two Gold Star status for out Mojito Sorbet is a real testament to the ongoing hard work and dedication of our team, which I am very proud to have here with us. We have always strived for the best with our range, taking our customers comments on board to produce the varied, hugely popular range we have available today. These awards serve as great confirmation from respected industry experts that New Forest Ice Cream is worthy of the excellent national reputation we have grown to command.”
The positive feedback from the judges was unanimous across both products - this is what the judges said:
This is brilliant and delivers on every level. It has gorgeously clean, fresh flavours that come marching through one after the other. Very cleverly put together.
Coconut Ice Cream:
A great textured ice cream, really luxurious and creamy, and the coconut is still moist: chewy but tender. It’s packed full of really good, fresh flavour – delicious.
New Forest Ice Cream is enjoyed across the UK in countless restaurants, cafés and leisure outlets. The award winning Mojito Sorbet is available in 2ltr catering tubs whilst the Coconut Ice Cream is available in both 4ltr and 4.5ltr catering tubs, along with other popular flavours in the range.
