2020 PRODUCT CHAMPIONS

The Taste of the West Product Awards programme comprises 26 food and drink categories. This year - despite setbacks and challenges - we have been able to judge over 800 products, all made in the West Country by food and drink producers in Cornwall, Devon, Somerset, Dorset, Gloucestershire and Wiltshire. Our panels of experts have evaluated each product individually, assessing its appearance, aroma, texture, packaging and above all else, its taste.

This is a list of our CHAMPION products for 2020. Congratulations to all the winners and our sincere thanks go to all sponsors, especially to Old Mill as title sponsors, for continuing to support the South West's food and drink industry.
