Our Award Winning Potatoes
At Puffin Produce, we’re really proud to promote Welsh produce with Pembrokeshire County Council’s Food Team/Produce Mark, and along the way, we’ve harvested a few awards!
Of course Blas y Tir isn’t just about potatoes. Other great Welsh veg in the range includes Cauliflower, Savoy and Green Cabbage, Leeks, Broccoli and Spring Onions. But it’s our not-so-humble spuds that have captured the awards and made regional headlines since the brand was launched in 2010.
In 2009, our potatoes scooped not one, but two ‘Spud Oscars’ when Blas y Tir’s Maris Peer Pembrokeshire Earlies won Wales the True Taste’s Gold award, and our Estima baking potato won the Silver. The potato after-party was spectacular!
In 2011, Blas y Tir was recognised as the ‘Best New Pembrokeshire Product of the Year’ in the Produce Mark Awards for Wales, presented at the Pembrokeshire County Show.
Later in the year, our potato newcomer Rudolph blushed an even deeper shade of red than usual when it galloped to a Gold, again at the ‘Wales the True Taste’ awards.
“We’re happy to win awards, not just to celebrate the hard work of our grower teams, but because more Welsh shoppers get to choose home-grown and locally-packed veg,” explains Huw Thomas, Managing Director of Puffin Produce.
Here’s to a star-studded 2012!
