Manx products recognised in Great Taste Awards
A growing number of award-winning Manx food and drink brands are providing a boost to the Island's image.
More than 70 locally made products were recognised in this year's Great Taste Awards - the highest number ever.
Items from desserts to speciality meats, craft beers and bread were ranked among the best in Britain by a panel of judges.
Winning a Great Taste Award allows manufacturers to brand their produce with a special seal of quality.
Government provided support to businesses entering the awards this year.
