Real Bread Campaign supporters Hobbs House Bakery, Ma Baker, Lovingly Artisan, Karaway and Seasons Bakery have all picked up at least one 2-star Great Taste Award for their additive-free loaves.

Other Campaign supporters that picked up at least one 1-star award each included Rogers Bakery, O'Donohues Bakery, Modern Baker, Bread Bread, The Bakehouse at 124, Bluebird Bakery, Celtic Bakers, Yellow Door, Plantissimo and The Hungry Guest.

Flour power

Over in the flour categories, two Real Bread Campaign supporters - Gilchesters Organics and Sharpham Park - each collected a coveted 3-star award, while Craggs & Co and Doves Farm each picked up 2-star awards.

Seeing stars

This year, 12,772 entries were blind tasted, of which 3,409 garnered 1-star awards, 1,326 received 2-stars, and only 208 were judges worthy of a 3-star award.

Any product that is deemed worthy of a 1-, 2- or 3-star Great Taste award is moved around multiple judging tables by a team of arbitrators before the final award is given.  For a Great Taste 3-star award, the vast majority in the room - which can be as many as 30-40 experts - must agree that the food or drink delivers that indescribable ‘wow’ factor.

Great Taste Golden Fork trophy winners for each region, and the Great Taste Supreme Champion will be announced at an event at the InterContinental Park Lane Hotel on Sunday 1 September.
