Welcome to the 6th Annual Blas na hEireann, Irish Food Awards 2013
These National Irish Food Awards celebrate and reward the very best tasting Irish food and drink products, and the passionate, driven producers who make it.
All Irish companies, North and South, are invited to submit products that are commercially available to the public in three outlets. These products are then tasted by over 60 judges, in two tranches, resulting in the winning products being awarded Gold, Silver and Bronze medals in more than 50 categories.
This is the biggest blind tasting of produce in the country, and the criteria on which the product is judged as well as the judging system itself was created by the Food Sciences Department of UCC.
The Blas na hEireann Awards is a non-for profit organisation, and was created by a group of Irish producers so that quality benchmarks could be established for Irish produce on a level playing field.
All products entered must be submitted by the producer , regardless of whether the product is made for own label or is branded.
Winning at the Blas Awards has made significant business differences to our winners. They are our best ambassadors. Click on ‘Testimonials’ to see what they have to say.
