Entering the Taste of Kent Awards can really put your food business in the spotlight. These highly respected awards are trusted by retailers and consumers alike and are a fantastic way of raising your profile, gaining accreditation and getting new customers. When judging these prestigious awards I am looking for the best product, something worth driving out to a restaurant or shop to taste. I am primarily looking at taste, texture and flavour. Other important considerations are aroma, clean deck ingredients, appearance, packaging and price point.
