Jaffys Traditional Mallaig Kippers awarded another 3 Gold Stars

We are pleased to announce that our Jaffys Traditional Mallaig Kippers have been awarded 3 Gold Stars at the Great Taste Awards 2014 by the Guild of fine food. This is the fourth year in a row that our Kippers have received Gold Stars from the Guild. In 2011 they won Best Scottish Speciality Food and were presented with a coveted Golden Fork, in 2012 our Kippers were nominated again for Scottish Speciality Food and we were included in the list of  Top 50 finest foods producers from Britain and Ireland 2012.

It took 45 days to judge this year’s 10,000 entries and before any food was awarded a one star gold, at least 14 experts had to agree it was perfect.  To be awarded two or three stars, at least 25 experts needed to reach unanimous agreement that the entry is absolutely stunning.  Only 154 foods were awarded 3 Gold Stars.

Having been awarded three stars our Kippers were subjected to a further round of tastings and have been put forward  to the national final in September.

We are also delighted to announce that Jaffys Oak Smoked Spiced Salmon was awarded 2 Gold Stars this year and our Jaffys Traditional Oak Smoked Organic Salmon and our Organic Peat Smoked Salmon  also won another Gold Star each this year.
