Our Awards

Award Winning Produce from Mediterranean Direct

As testimony to the quality of our range, eighteen Mediterranean Direct products have won Great Taste Awards. These awards, organised by the Guild of Fine Food are considered the ‘Oscars of the gourmet food sector’ and the absolute benchmark of quality food in the UK.

These products are our standard bearers of excellence and epitomise the true quality which extends throughout the Mediterranean Direct range. Our Parmesan cheese, Pancetta and Pheasant & Truffle Pate have all won double Gold stars, the highest award for these products in the UK

Mediterranean Direct was also nominated as UK Speciality Importer of the Year by the Guild of Fine Food and recommended by Nigella Lawson as a supplier of quality ingredients.

Our range also features World Champions, European Champions and many international best-in-class award winners. You can read about these on the product pages and we’ll be adding them to this page.
