Great Taste Awards Winner

South Caernarfon Creameries is celebrating that it’s Dragon Salted Welsh Butter has been awarded a prestigious Gold 2 star award from the Great Taste Awards, the world’s largest and most rigorous food awards scheme.

It is a phenomenal achievement for the farmer-owned dairy co-operative as there were almost 10,000 entries into this year’s awards. All products are blind tasted by a panel of industry experts including food writers and food buyers from premium stores such as Harrods, Fortnum & Mason and Selfridges. It is a rigorous judging process and only the very best attain an award.

“The Great Taste Awards provide the ideal benchmark for food producers as their focus is on taste and quality rather than the brand or elaborate packaging. Only 6% of products that were entered received 2 stars so we are obviously extremely pleased to be amongst the very best” explains Alan Wyn-Jones, Managing Director at South Caernarfon Creameries. “Receiving a prestigious award with national recognition will help raise the profile of both our butter and the Dragon brand. This will undoubtedly help our efforts to promote Dragon outside the principality.”
