Happisburgh-based Ollands Farm Foods has won two stars for its Seville Orange Marmalade at the Great Taste Awards 2017, which celebrate the best in food and drink.
It’s the first time the firm has received Great Taste stars and owner Mary Ann Stuart said: “Out of over 12,300 products being judged, just over 1,000 received a two-star award.
“The awards are judged by over 500 of the most demanding food critics, chefs, restaurateurs and food writers, so to be recognised is really fantastic.
“We make all our products by hand in small batches in our own kitchen using traditional methods.”
Being awarded two stars out of a possible three means the judges dubbed the marmalade “outstanding”.
It’s the first time in several years that a Norfolk marmalade has been recognised in this way.
The Seville Orange Marmalade won a gold award at the World’s Original Marmalade Awards in March.
