Island is destination for 'foodies'

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. 

Andrew Lees is DEFA's Food Business Development Manager.
