Mymoune celebrates the winning of two Great Taste Awards
Mymoune has been presented with a much-desired UK Great Taste Award for two of its products: Pomegranate Molasses (Gold – 2 Stars) and Apricot Preserve (Gold – 1 Star).
In total, Mymoune has been the proud winner of 14 Great Taste Awards since 2005. Youmna Goraieb, co-founder of Mymoune, said: ‘We are thrilled to win these awards. All of Mymoune’s hard-working team members are proud to see our products make their way from the picturesque little village of Ain-El-Kabou in Mount-Lebanon, to the podium of the most prestigious international contest and to the shelves of the best fine food stores in Lebanon, Europe and the US’.
This prestigious competition has been described as the ‘Oscars’ of the specialty food industry, and the ‘epicurian equivalent of the Booker prize’.
In 2015, around 10,000 products entered the competition and were scrutinised by a panel of more than 400 independent judges over a period of 3 months, including ‘blind tastings’. The awards have been given out for excellence in taste, texture and flavour.
Here are the benefits of their Pomegranate molasses which I love to add in salad dressings or even to add a sweet taste to baked ingredients.
