Dr Honey is among the Great Taste Award winners of 2016

Great Taste, the world’s most coveted blind-tasted food awards, which celebrates the very best in food and drink, has announced the Great Taste stars of 2016. Out of 10,000 products to be judged Hungaroharvest Kft. was awarded a 1-star Great Taste award for its Dr Honey Premium Acacia Honey and also 1-star Great Taste award for its Dr Honey Premium Honeydew Honey.

Judged by over 500 of the most demanding palates, belonging to food critics, master chefs, cooks, restaurateurs and producers as well as a whole host of food writers, journalists and food buyers from Harrods, Selfridges, Fortnum & Mason, Harvey Nichols and Waitrose , 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.

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 bread, honey, salami or cereal 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 from the 10.000 entries.

Hungaroharvest Ltd. exclusively use Hungarian honey in the production, it is not mixed with honeys from any other sources. Having got many positive feedback from consumers of different countries encouraged as to nominate our products to this international measurement.

The judges described our acacia honey as “clear and pure, softly thick, sweet, silky, fragrant and meadowy. The nose is not obvious – the palate is excellent.” and our honeydew honey as having „a lovely flowing texture and a very appealing, floral, citrus palate – not cloying despite its sweetness, and with a lovely, clean yet lingering finish”.

We are proud to be part of the most exclusive club of fine food and the feedback of the jury confirm our belief that high quality is a value and also the reward for our efforts.

Date: London/Budapest, the 1st August 2016
