Hunter & Gather – the challenger condiments, fats and supplements brand re-writing the rule book for real, healthy food – has been named amongst the top food and drink producers this year, picking up 4 stars in the highly acclaimed 2022 Great Taste Awards, and receiving Great Taste Producer status.
This year, over 14,000 products were entered into the world’s largest and most trusted food and drink accreditation scheme and each of the products were put through a rigorous blind tasting process.
Hunter & Gather, whose real food products are always free from refined sugar, grains, and inflammatory seed and vegetable oils, picked up Great Taste Stars this year for its Grass Fed British Organic Ghee, which the judges described as ‘Sunshine in a jar’, plus its Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Unsweetened Tomato Ketchup, and Olive Oil Mayonnaise.
Amy Moring, Co-founder of Hunter & Gather says: “As a brand that puts real, healthy food first and foremost, being named a Great Taste Producer is a huge accolade. For other brands, “great tasting” products are often achieved with added sugars, sweeteners, or chemical additives. Ours are different as we make a promise to never use refined sugars, grains, or inflammatory seed oils. Instead, we champion real, well sourced, nutritionally dense food – from the finest tomatoes, herbs and spices that go into our tomato ketchup to the British free range egg yolk, apple cider vinegar, and pink Himalayan salt in our mayo.
“As a Great Taste Producer, we’re proving that ‘tasty’ and ‘healthy’ can go hand in hand; we’re leading the charge for real food, and a healthier future, and we’re very proud of that.”
The four Hunter & Gather Products awarded 1 Great Taste Star in 2022 are:
Hunter & Gather Grass Fed British Organic Ghee: The judges described this as “Sunshine in a jar.” “This ghee is rich and herby, with a really appealing level of butteriness. A delicious and well-made product.”
Hunter & Gather Extra Virgin Olive Oil: “A beautifully balanced oil, gentle in its appeal, but with a sound arc of flavour This is a versatile oil, as good for dipping bread as for dressings and drizzling.”
Hunter & Gather Unsweetened Classic Tomato Ketchup: “We know how challenging it is to create a good tasting tomato ketchup – it ends up either too sweet or too acidic. This got the balance just right and we would happily take home a jar.”
Hunter & Gather Classic Olive Oil Mayonnaise: “We loved the thickness and colour of this mayonnaise, which looked like a deep creamy vanilla; very indulgent. On the palate it was very balanced, as well as super soft and silky textured.”
