ARE YOU looking for something new to tickle your tastebuds?

Then look no further than the winners of this year's Great Taste Awards. 

Hampshire food and drink companies have walked away with an incredible 95 prizes in this year's Great Taste Awards.

There was stiff competition this year as the awards, organised by the Guild of Fine Food, welcomed entries from 108 countries and 14,113 different products. 

A total of 12 companies in and around Southampton scooped prizes for their tasty products, either being awarded a Great Taste one or two accolade.

A three-star award is the highest ranking, but one and two-star recipients are classed as delicious or outstanding.
