Wales to host Great Taste judging roadshow in 2017
Welsh entries to Great Taste 2017 will be judged on home soil, the Welsh Government has announced.
Lesley Griffiths, Cabinet Secretary for the Environment and Rural Affairs, said a Great Taste judging roadshow in Wales will form part of the eight week process where 10,000 products from the UK and beyond will be assessed by hundreds of independent judges.
Griffiths, who announced the news at a celebration event for 2016’s Welsh Great Taste winners, said: “Wales is excited to be hosting the judging of the Welsh entries for the awards in 2017. It truly is wonderful to see that so many Welsh food and drink producers have been recognised at Great Taste 2016 and it highlights Wales as a country with the highest level of quality and innovation in food and drink production.”
Entries for Great Taste 2017 open for members from January 18 2017, with general entries opening from February 1.
