What are the judges looking for?
All entrances are judged for great texture, appearance and taste. The judges examine the quality of seafood and how well the maker has smoked the seafood. But above all, they are looking for truly great taste.
How does the judging work?
Working in small teams, the judges taste 20 or 30 foods in each sitting, discussing each product and writing feedback for the producer. Any smoked fish they think is worthy of a gold is passed onto a Supreme Jury who, if they agree, will decide whether to award one, two or three gold stars.
What should you look for?
The logo. The Great Taste Awards symbol is your guarantee that a product has been through our rigorous judging process. It's not about smart packaging or clever marketing - it's all about taste.
