Great Taste, the world’s most coveted food and drink awards, has announced its stars of 2019.


Out of 12,772 products sent in from over 100 different countries, Waitey's based in Calne was awarded a 1-star Great Taste award, which means judges dubbed it a food that delivers fantastic flavour for its Indian Paste and 'Indian' Bean Chutney.

Waitey's is among the Great Taste winners of 2019

Judged by over 500 of the most demanding palates, belonging to food critics, chefs, cooks, restaurateurs, buyers, retailers and producers, as well as a whole host of food writers and journalists, Great Taste is widely acknowledged as the most respected food accreditation scheme for artisan and speciality food producers. As well as a badge of honour, the unmistakeable black and gold Great Taste label is a signpost to a wonderful tasting product, which has been discovered through hours and hours of blind tasting by hundreds of judges.       


Recognised as a stamp of excellence among consumers and retailers alike, Great Taste values taste above all else, with no regard for branding and packaging. Whether it is vinegar, granola, bacon or cheese being judged, all products are removed from their wrapper, jar, box or bottle before being tasted. The judges then savour, confer and re-taste to decide which products are worthy of a 1-, 2- or 3-star award.


There were 12,772 entries into Great Taste this year and of those products, 208 have been awarded a 3-star, 1,326 received a 2-star and 3,409 were awarded a 1-star accolade.

"A punchy aroma of vinegar." 

"An Indian piccalilli with a pleasing balance of sweetness, acidity and very gentle, warming spice."

"A pleasing texture." 

"Served with a spicy meal rather than plain meat or cheese.”
