2016 Quality Food Awards Highly Commended

2016 Quality Food Award Highly Recommended Superfoods | Centrifuge Organic Coconut Oil from Essence of Eden

2016 Superfoods Award

We were picked out in the SUPERFOODS category and came up as a  winner. Considering we didn’t even apply for that category we would say that is pretty good!

We love that our product is still just as good as when we started out all those years ago and is receiving recognition year on year.

Thank you for all your amazing support.

We look forward to even more exciting things from 2017 as we gear up to a busy year of growth. Perhaps even a new product line or few!  Watch out for more. (We are down at the bottom with other superfood winners)

2013 Quality Food Award Finalist

Quality Food Awards 2013 Finalist | Centrifuge Organic Coconut Oil by Essence of Eden

How it happened

We were recently selected as a Finalist in the Quality Food Awards.  Add this to our existing level of awards for product quality, consistency of supply and customer service means we are immensely proud of our exceptional little company.

Simon Wright, Food Consultant and Chair of the QFA Judging Panel stated “Every Year the Quality Food Awards provides us with a glimpse of what is possible when the best food and drink producers focus on making something extraordinary. This year was no exception”

The Quality Food Award accolades are the most difficult to win in the food and drink business sector. So for Essence of Eden to be selected as a Finalist as a small producer amongst the giants of Tesco, Aldi, Lidl , Sainsbury, Asda, Marks & Spencer, The Cooperative and others is no small accomplishment. So congratulations to all the Finalists and all the Winners of each category.

With over  1000 products submitted and over a 100 judges, the QFA of 2013 was a record breaker!  This award process is not a blind tasting session, but an analysis of the whole product. Value for money, quality of product, packaging, labelling and those that meet customer demand in all aspects.  The awards now in their 40th year are well placed to make such judgements.
