Crisp brand, Tyrrells, has won nine Gold awards at the 2014 Great Taste Awards.

These prestigious awards are considered the Oscars of the food world, with each category judged by a panel of experts including retailers, chefs, restaurant critics, food writers and industry experts.

Tyrrells has achieved 64 Gold Great Taste Awards in total over the past 12 years, more than any other premium crisp producer, the company reports.

Three of Tyrrells’ most recent launches are included in the gold medal line-up, including ‘Swanky’ Veg (which includes candy striped beetroot and golden beetroot), Apple Crisps and Sweet Potato & Chipotle Chilli crisps. Other winners include long standing favourites Sweet Chilli & Red Pepper crisps, Sea Salt & Black Pepper crisps and freshly farm-popped Sea Salted popcorn.

Cath White of Tyrrells Crisps said: “We are thrilled to have won so many awards across our range. Whether it’s popcorn, veg crisps, apple crisps or all-time favourite potato crisps, the results not only prove that our innovation is working, but also that Herefordshire potatoes keep making the best crisps year after year! The Great Taste Awards are a fantastic opportunity for British producers to show off their talent; we’re very proud to be one of them.

This year, over 8,000 products were entered into the awards.
