We are pleased to announce that our Greek Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil “La Kouzina Verde” was awarded a Gold Star in the 2016 Great Taste Awards, the world’s most coveted blind-tasted food awards which celebrates the very best in food and drink.

The award winning La Kouzina Verde Organic Greek Extra Virgin Olive Oil, is a single variety ‘Koroneiki’ Olive Oil from small producers in the Southern part of Peloponnese. It is characterized as : “Grassy and leafy on the nose, creamy and mousse like, developing into a fresh slightly bitter grass flavour and then a quite short finish”. (panel judge comments)

“We are excited and pleased to have received a Great Taste Award for our La Kouzina Verde Organic Olive Oil on the first year of introducing it to the market. This award is a recognition of our continuous efforts and commitment to produce high quality, natural and delicious food” explains Sakis Michalarakos, founder of Inspirational Foods and olive oil producer.

Judged by over 500 of the most demanding palates, belonging to food critics, chefs, cooks, restaurateurs and producers as well as a whole host of food writers and journalists, Great Taste is widely acknowledged as the most respected food accreditation scheme for artisan and speciality food producers. As well as a badge of honour, the unmistakeable black and gold Great Taste label is a signpost to a wonderful tasting product, which has been discovered through hours and hours of blind-tasting by hundreds of judges.

Recognised as a stamp of excellence among consumers and retailers alike, Great Taste values taste above all else, with no regard for branding and packaging. Whether it is bread, honey, salami or cereal being judged, all products are removed from their wrapper, jar, box or bottle before being tasted.
