Great Taste, ‘the world’s most trusted food and drink awards’, has announced its stars of 2020. Out of 12,777 products sent in from 106 different countries, the Waldron family in Brideswell was awarded a further two Great Taste awards, for its baked ham and bacon chops.
The Good Taste judges praised the Waldrons’ ham for its look, texture and taste, adding that it was “ham how it should be”.
They were equally effusive in their praise for the Waldron family’s bacon, marvelling at its aroma, flavour and cure, adding that “it has all the characteristics of great bacon”.
No strangers to winning awards, the Waldron family are consistent winners at the Blas Irish Food Awards and Great Taste awards and winner of Ireland’s Best Meat Supplier.
Michael Waldron commented: “It is a case of never standing still and never taking your foot off the pedal. We are truly delighted with these awards for our business but winning and satisfying customers every day of the week is the best award of all.
“Our consistency of taste and quality and the awards to prove it are standing to us. The Waldron family is all about offering the customer the finest cured real Irish pork and bacon products at the most competitive price.
“As we approach Christmas we will be delighted to have our multi-award winning pre-cooked ham available for our customers to enjoy and to give the chef a break!”
