Ice cream takes plum prize at Heff’s Diamond awards
Churchfields Farmhouse Ice Cream and Just Crisps were among the winners at this year’s Heart of England Fine Foods Diamond awards.
A Worcestershire plum ice cream made by Churchfields took the top honour, the Taste prize, for the best product entered into the West Midlands food group’s award scheme as well as the dairy category.
Just Crisps were the only other producer to claim two gongs, winning the snacks category with its jalapeno crisps and special Grow award for its export success.
Other category winners included a Longhorn T-bone from Martins Meats (fresh meat category), black cherry Merangz bites from The Little Round Cake Co (desserts), salted lemon dark chocolates made by Sue Gilmour (chocolate) and The Kitchens Fine Food Co’s hot garlic pickle (condiments & preserves).
Online shop Shropshire’s Own, which also has a physical store, won the Best Retailer award.
All of the winners received their awards at a ceremony presented by the BBC’s Sarah Falkland (pictured, far right, with the Churchfields team).
