Hawkshead Relish based in the heart of the English Lake District have received four national awards in the Great British Food Awards 2023.
The four awards included a bronze award for their best selling Raspberry & Vanilla Jam in the Jam category. Another bronze award was given for their NEW Bloody Mary Slow Cooker Sauce, and a silver was awarded for their NEW Lemon & Garlic Slow Cooker Sauce. The fourth award they picked up was the overall regional award for the North of England.
Maria Whitehead MBE, co-owner of Hawkshead Relish said: “We’re absolutely thrilled to have collected these four prestigious awards, not only for the products, but for our whole team creating our new slow cooker sauce range. We are also incredibly proud to have been selected as the North of England regional winner against so many other amazing top producers making this a truly exceptional achievement.”
Launched earlier in 2023, the first two Slow Cooker Sauces in the range have already received a great response from their customers. Created as an easy solution for a quick and tasty dinner without the use of overprocessed ingredients. Simply add a jar of their sauce to your meat of choice, set the slow cooker to run and return to a delicious meal with minimal effort. The company’s handmade high quality ethos extends to this range which brings all the flavour you expect from the award winning Hawkshead Relish Company. The company is already planning the launch of a further two flavours joining this range in the coming months.
The annual awards first launched in 2014 to celebrate the country's finest artisanal produce, as well as the hard-working people behind the scenes. With categories from dairy to cheese, artisan drinks to savoury preserves, there’s a category for every food imaginable.
Judges this year included the likes of food writer and restaurant critic William Sitwell, chef Sally Abe, chef Paul Askew, chef Michel Roux Jr, chef Adam Handling, chef Raymond Blanc, and restaurateur Shelina Permaloo, to name a few, who tasted their way through a huge array of products across the 52 award categories.
