Llandysul-based Caws Teifi Cheese was one of many Ceredigion food producers that have come out on top at the recent Great Taste Awards 2023. 

Great Taste splits entries into one, two and three-star products; the latter described as 'exquisite' and 'extraordinarily tasty'.

More than 14,000 products from 109 countries were assessed, and 24 Ceredigion businesses received either 1, 2 or 3 stars for their products.

Fifteen of those food producers have received technical support from Food Centre Wales, a dedicated food technology centre offering advice, technical services and training to business start-ups, SMEs and existing food manufacturers.

Caws Teifi Cheese received three stars for its Gwyn Bach; two stars for Celtic Promise, and another two stars for Teifi Mature.

Ceri Valley Orchards gained two stars for its Blackcurrant Cider Vinegar and Mantle Brewery’s Continental Drifter also received two stars.

Ceredigion food producers received a total of 19 one-star ratings

Cabinet Member for Economy and Regeneration Councillor Clive Davies said: “This is excellent news for our food producers here in Ceredigion.

“It’s fantastic to see so much quality produce being recognised, many of which have used the Food Centre Wales facilities at Horeb to develop and fine tune their product for the consumer market.

"Congratulations to everyone who gained this recognition and to food businesses who need to develop their product, contact Food Centre Wales.”
