The Champions of the 2015 Taste of the West Product Awards and the winners of the 2015 Taste of the West Hospitality & Retail Awards have been announced on 28th September at a prestigious ceremony held at the Somerset County Cricket ground in Taunton, Somerset.  The ceremony culminated in the announcement of the coveted Supreme Champion award, won by Favis of Salcombe for their White Crab Meat, which was described by the judges as “An outstandingly high quality product, which sums up the best of South West produce.”

The Awards, now in their 22nd year, celebrate the best food and drink across Cornwall, Devon, Somerset, Dorset, Wiltshire and Gloucestershire and are a benchmark for excellence across the region.  In 2015, nearly 1,000 products and over 300 hospitality and retail establishments entered the awards, with an incredibly high standard being set for judges from which to select winners.  At today’s ceremony, the overall winners of each of the Hospitality & Retail classes were announced, followed by the Champions of each Product Category.
