Quality Foods
Award Winners

The Quality Food Awards (QFAs) are judged by renowned industry experts and cast a spotlight on products with fine ingredients, beautiful packaging and value for money. All products are first blind tested, then picked up and analysed by hand, as consumers would, meaning that they hold real value in the grocery sector. The QFAs are a real testament to a product’s quality, both inside and out.

Franklin & Sons Cloudy Apple and Yorkshire Rhubarb with Cinnamon was announced as winner of best Cold Beverage-Carbonates at the Quality Food and Drink Awards 2016.

“We will never look at G&T in the same light again!”
