Awards

Great Taste Award 2013

Brookfield Farm were pleased to receive a Great Taste Award for both their high welfare English veal escalopes and osso bucco. Both products were awarded a gold star in the world's largest and most rigorous food awards scheme, involving over 400 judges and thousands of hours of blind tasting. Being able to proudly promote the Great Taste logos on these two products will support Brookfield Farm's efforts to encourage consumers to add veal to their weekly menu.

Great Taste is simply about taste, not clever branding or smart packaging.  Judges are presented with, for example, a piece of cheese, a pie or a little dish of chutney, with no wrappings, jars or marks – and they taste, confer and re-taste before making the decision on whether a product should be a 1-, 2- or 3-star winner.  In total more than 12 judges will have tasted and commented on each product.

Compassion in World Farming Good Pig Award 2013
