The awards are now in their 7th year and all Irish companies are invited to enter. The products are tasted by panels of selected judges in two tranches resulting in the winning products being awarded Gold, Silver & Bronze.
The Blas awards are the biggest blind tasting of produce in Ireland, and the criteria on which the product is judged as well as the judging system itself, which was developed by Blas na hEireann with the Food Science Dept of UCC, is now recognised as an international industry standard.
