Our team is celebrating after winning two awards at the 2017 deliciouslyorkshire Taste Awards.
We beat stiff competition to be awarded the prize for Best Fresh Meat with our grain fed chicken fillet, which was subsequently awarded the Supreme Product Award.
Our General Manager, Nigel Upson was over the moon with the first award, but overcome with the second award, that is chosen from all of the individual category winners and recognises the champion of champions. “These awards are testament to the hard work of all of our farmers, who work tirelessly with the team at Middleton to rear our chickens to high welfare standards that result in great tasting chicken” he said.
The judges, a panel of industry experts including chefs, supermarkets buyers, food critics, industry experts and Radio 2’s resident foodie, Nigel Barden, were ‘blown away’ by the chicken fillet and said: “This is such a pleasure to eat. It screams quality and whoever reared it should be very proud.
“In a competition that has received in excess of 350 product entries, this year’s Supreme Champion stood head and shoulders above its competitors and was a pleasure to judge.”
They concluded that it was “A quality product on every level.”
Judy Bell, chairman of deliciouslyorkshire, said: “Our judging panel certainly had their work cut out, but the products and businesses that have been crowned this year’s champions are incredibly well deserving.”
Thanks to everyone at Soanes who made this award possible – it’s a tremendous achievement.
