SuperValu took home 100 awards at the 2021 Great Taste awards, making it the top performing Irish supermarket at the world’s largest and most trusted food and drink awards.
SuperValu’s wins include 49 products from the Signature Tastes Range solidifying its position as the No. 1 Premium Range for taste and quality in an Irish Supermarket. SuperValu took home three ‘3 Star’ awards this year, and an additional 26 awards on its 2020 wins.
This year the SuperValu’s Signature Tastes Irish Hill Lamb Rump Roast was awarded three stars, making it one of the highest ranked products from an Irish retailer. The Signature Tastes Irish Hill Lamb Rump Roast is a naturally leaner, sweeter and more succulent lamb, lightly dusted with a sea salt, black pepper & herb rub. The free roaming mountain lambs graze naturally on a diet of wild herbs, grasses and heathers, including garlic, bilberry, samphire and rosemary. It’s this that gives the deep pink and juicy meat of the Atlantic Hill lamb its uniquely sweet & delicate flavour.
Other three-star winners include the Signature Tastes Riojan Chorizo Cular and the Signature Tastes Irish Hampshire Easy Carve Ham Fillet.
The Signature Tastes cheeses all performed well at the blind taste testing with the Signature Tastes Gubeen Cheese, Signatures Tastes Italian Parmigiano Reggiano, Signature Tastes French Brie de Meaux, Signature Tastes Cashel Blue Cheese, Signature Tastes Gortnamona, Signature Tastes Greek Feta and Goats Cheese French Brie de Meaux all taking home awards.
The already award-winning Signature Tastes Raspberry Conserve won a one-star award thanks to its lovely aroma and pleasing flavour of fresh raspberry. It is the perfect addition to any breakfast table and is supplied by Irish preserve makers Folláin who have been working with SuperValu for over twenty years.
Other winners at the event include the Signature Tastes Kevin Dundon Christmas Pudding, Signature Tastes Sicilian Lemon Yogurt, SuperValu Lamb Rack, SuperValu Sour Cream, The Happy Pear Lovely Basil Pesto and the Signature Tastes Freshly Squeezed OJ.
