Cranstons have won two prestigious Great Taste Awards for their Honey Roast Ham and Chicken Wellington.
The products, which are on sale now in Cranstons Cumbrian Food Hall Penrith and Cranstons four traditional butcher shops, each received one Gold star. Gold stars are awarded to products the judges deem ‘Close to perfect’.
The Great Taste Awards aim to find the finest products from across the UK, and the black and gold emblem is widely recognised by customers as a true mark of quality, as well as being recognised within the industry as a benchmark for high quality food and drink.
Cranstons produce their Honey Roast Ham at their Ullswater Road site in Penrith, using only the finest local pork from Orchard House farm, Newbiggin. It is noted for its subtle flavour with a hint of sweetness. The popular Chicken Wellington is an innovative twist on the beef classic: succulent chicken breasts with sage and onion stuffing, wrapped in streaky bacon and encased in crisp puff pastry.
Managing Director Philip Cranston says, ‘At Cranstons we pride ourselves on producing quality products, so we are delighted to receive these prestigious awards in recognition of this fact. Our customers can be assured that the products they are purchasing are truly “gold standard”.’
