Paramount 21 win gold star at the 2009 great taste awards

f0333-veggie-burger-luxuryFamily Run, Devon based business Paramount 21 Ltd is again celebrating after receiving a Great Taste Gold Award for their Hannaford’s Luxury Vegetable Burger.

The Luxury Vegetable Burgers, a delicious mixture of puy lentils, grated carrot, onion and spring onion, are flavoured with exotic spices. The chunky vegetables and puy lentils give the burgers a wonderful rustic texture and prevent the burger becoming stodgy.

Ali Hannaford, Owner of Paramount said “We are so proud to be given this award. We pride ourselves in creating some of the finest seafood and vegetarian dishes around – this is the third year running that we have received a Great Taste Award for our products”

Puy lentils have been widely marketed as one of the new “superfoods”. They are full of soluble fibre which plays a role in preventing colon cancer as well as being high in B vitamins and minerals such as iron.

The Luxury Vegetable Burgers are sold in a box of six and are perfect for serving to vegetarians and meat eaters alike. Buy a box to keep in your freezer for when surprise vegetarian guests come to dinner!

Buying frozen food means that you only need to take out what you are going to cook, preventing waste and saving money. Hannaford’s dishes are perfect cooked from frozen, so you don’t even need to think about defrosting them earlier in the day!

The Hannaford’s range was introduced in 2005 to ensure that the excellent dishes produced by Paramount could reach a wider audience. Hannaford’s offers indulgence on a plate, using premium quality ingredients to produce dishes that look and taste fantastic.

The Great Taste Awards are widely considered to be the “Oscars of the food industry“. The judging is recognised as the most thorough in the UK. This has never been truer than in 2009 where each entry was blind tasted by two teams of independent experts who worked separately, but concurrently, to recommend products to go through to the next stage.

Each judging session was then subjected to a supreme jury who blind tasted each entry to confirm the award they are given.

The Hannaford’s range is widely available in Farm Shops through the NISA consortium or directly from our Factory Shop which runs from 9am to 1pm on the first Friday of each month. For more information please visit www.hannafords-online.co.uk or www.paramount21.co.uk or call 01626 837650.

Paramount 21 Ltd is a family-run company based in Heathfield, Devon and has been operating since 1988.  Hannaford’s retail range was introduced in 2005 to ensure that our delicious high quality dishes could reach as wide an audience as possible.
