AMITY FISH CO SEEING STARS AT GREAT TASTE
Two of the Peterhead Seafood Supplier’s signature products have been ranked among some of the best produce in the country, receiving a Great Taste star each in this year’s meticulous tasting awards.
Amity Fish Company are delighted to be awarded two prestigious Great Taste Awards in the 2022 judging process.
The bestselling Panko Breaded Single Wholetail Scampi has been re-awarded a Great Taste star after first winning the accolade in 2021, with judges adoring the “sweet and plump” scampi that delivered on flavour.
In a welcome surprise, this year Amity’s Panko Breaded Queenie Scallops have also been awarded a star, with judges deeming the product “sweet, soft and succulent” with a lovely crunch.
The Great Taste 1-star rating signifies these products are ‘simply delicious’ in the eyes of the judges and so they join a prestigious group of food and drink products that have been singled out for being impressively delicious.
Amity’s Great Taste success comes at the end of a rigorous judging process where over 14,000 products have undergone thorough blind taste-testing by a selection of chefs, buyers, fine food retailers, restaurateurs, food critics and writers over 70 judging days.
What Is Great Taste and Why does it matter?
Great Taste is the largest and most trusted accreditation scheme for fine food and drink, offering a unique benchmarking and product evaluation service leading to an independent accreditation that encourages confidence and commercial success for small business, generating greater awareness for products locally, regionally, nationally and internationally.
Since 1994, more than 130,000 products have been put through this robust judging process.
Of the wins, Amity Managing Director Jimmy Buchan said:
“Picking up a second Great Taste award for our signature Panko breaded Scampi, along with a new accolade for our Panko Breaded Queenie Scallops is testament that the products are making an impact on judges; we are thrilled to receive these new awards which is a story of pride and success from sea to plate and is reflected in the response of our customers to these products.”
Amity’s double-nomination follows a successful 2022 so far for the seafood supplier; shortlisted at a host of regional and National Awards over summer; the seafood supplier was also named Small Business of the Year by the Federation of Small Businesses at the UK awards earlier this year.
