Helen Browning’s Organic Hot Dog

wins 3* Great Taste Award 2018


Great Taste, the world’s most coveted food awards, which celebrates the very best in food and drink, has announced the Great Taste stars of 2018. Out of over 12,600 products to be judged, Helen Browning’s Organic was awarded a 3-star Great Taste award, which means the product was described by judges as extraordinarily tasty for its Hot Dog, here are just a few of their feedback comments!

“Wonderful on the palate, beautifully balanced textures, flavours and seasoning. Sweetly smokey, gently savoury, just the perfect resilience of skin and meat. Wonderfully satisfying. We’re joining the queue wherever this is sold”

“Bring this on with a dollop of mustard. Dude food done well”

“Juicy sweet pork meat with subtle smoke. A really big burst of flavour in the mouth when you bite into the sausage. Satisfying, warm lingering smoky flavours. Quite delicious!”

“This is delicious, succulent, and reminds you just how poor the average hot dog is! Really exceptional – one of our judges is a chilli specialist and we need one of  his sauces! The balance of salt, spice and meat is just right and you are left salivating in a good way!”


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.

Claire Bailey, Helen Browning’s Organic, explains:

We are determined to give our pigs the good life they deserve, and convinced that their organic, free range credentials makes our pork truly delicious. So we’re over the moon to have received such fantastic comments from the Great Taste judges for our Hot Dog.   We’re delighted to be members of the Guild of Fine Food and hope that this award encourages many more people to indulge with confidence, opens doors to new retailers, and increasing sales. We’ll be celebrating at the Go Organic Festival on the 8/9th September with sampling & special offers on our Hot Dogs and other fresh products. www.goorganicfestival.co.uk

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 vinegar, granola, bacon or cheese being judged, all products are removed from their wrapper, jar, box or bottle before being tasted. The judges then savour, confer and re-taste to decide which products are worthy of a 1-, 2- or 3-star award.

There were 12,634 entries into Great Taste this year and of those products, 192 have been awarded a 3-star.

As the judges said … “Dude food well done! We’re joining the queue wherever this is sold!”  Find out more and where to buy here>
