Equi’s Ice Cream Scoops 8 Great Taste Awards
Equi’s ice cream has swept the table at the Great Taste Awards winning an astonishing eight – yes, eight! – awards!
Six of Equi’s delicious flavours were awarded two stars and superlative feedback from the judges, including Double Cream Vanilla (a “perfect marriage” of flavours), Dark Chocolate Sorbet (“enormously inviting”) and Vanilla Pod (“Bang on!”)
Hazelnut also hit the right spot – described as “faultless” – as did Blackcurrant and Wild Fruit Ripple, declared “absolutely yum!”
And our Passionfruit Sorbet was announced “positively sparkling with flavour” and “astonishingly creamy”.
Aw, you guys…
But that’s not all…
Two more flavours won one star awards, bringing Equi’s total to eight: the best in our company history.
Strawberry Ripple was one of the flavours to impress the panel – a real “wow product” according to one judge – while our White Chocolate and Lime Cheesecake was praised for its “creamy texture”, richness and zest.
The Creme de la Creme
Established in 1994 by The Guild of Fine Food, the awards impose the most rigorous quality and taste standards on the industry.
They’re what the Booker Prize is to books or what Crufts is to dogs – whichever you prefer.
This year, 12,772 food and drink products were entered in the awards, with 208 winning 3 stars, 1,326 receiving 2 stars and 3,409 awarded the 1 star accolade.
The judging panel comprises the most discerning foodies around, including Olia Hercules, Kenny Tutt and Kavi Thakar, as well as a host of industry experts and buyers from the likes of Fortnum & Mason and Selfridges.
Previously, Equi’s best ever Great Taste showing was winning six awards in 2017, so we’re delighted we’ve broken our own record this year. Boom!
Success Tastes Sweet
David Equi, MD and Chief Ice Cream Tester, was thrilled with the outcome.
“To win and compete alongside some of the UK’s very best producers is a massive honor,” he said of the results.
“We’ve got a great team who continue to create the very best ice cream. We’ve got a lot of exciting plans in the pipeline and I’m looking forward to seeing what the rest of the year has in store for us.”
