Seven best-one own brand products recognised at prestigious food awards ceremony
Best-one, the own brand range by Bestway Wholesale, has won four awards at the 2018 Local Shop Quality Food Awards. The range also received two ‘commended’ accolades and a ‘highly commended’ on top of that.
The awards, managed by the same people who write Independent Retail News magazine, recognise and celebrate the best of UK food and drink. The ceremony was held at London’s prestigious Grosvenor House Hotel on Thursday 27th September.
The Best-one Inspired Pesto alla Genovese, which won the ‘Cooking Sauces Category’ and the Best-one Inspired Double Gloucester and Sundried Tomato Bites, which were highly commended in the ‘Biscuit, Cakes and Morning Goods category’, are part of Bestway’s premium own brand range of 15 SKU’s designed to offer consumers premium high quality, affordable own-brand products. And the Pesto sauce lives up to its’ promise, containing more basil than most other Pesto sauces on the market.
Two own-brand drinks were also recognised, with the Best-one coconut water winning the ‘Juices and Smoothies’ category, and the Best-one Energy Drink winning the ‘Value-Q drink’ category and commended in the ‘Cold Beverages’ category.
The awards have a rigorous judging process which is entirely independent and draws a panel from around 400 industry experts. These include nutritionists, dietitians, chefs, chef-lecturers, home economists, food writers, restaurateurs, food technologists and developers, and the list goes on. Every entry gets written feedback from the judges, making for a completely transparent process.
This years’ panel also chose the best-one white chocolate as the ‘Chocolate’ category winner and the best-one cheese puffs were commended in the ‘Value Q Ambient’ category.
On top of all the Best-one awards, the Map Trading White Pearl Basmati Rice, which is produced at an exclusive plant at Bestway Wholesales Head Office on Abbey Road, London, won the Rice category. This single-grain basmati rice is just one product in an extensive range of White Pearl world foods.
The best-one and best-one inspired own brand ranges are available exclusively at Bestway and Batleys depots throughout the UK. The focus for the best-one range is on attractive consumer-facing packaging, quality ingredients and competitive price-marked packs which deliver excellent POR for Bestway customers and fantastic prices for consumers.
