Border Celebrates 2019 Great Taste Award


Premium biscuit manufacturer Border Biscuits is delighted to announce its Milk Chocolate Gingers have been recognised in the UK’s largest and most trusted awards scheme for speciality food and drink, the Great Taste Awards.

The brand’s Milk Chocolate Gingers were awarded a One Star Great Taste Award which is for ‘food that delivers fantastic flavour’. The announcement follows hot on the heels of Border Biscuits success in 2018 which saw our Dark Chocolate Gingers and Lemon Drizzle Melts award a One Star Great Taste Award while its Dark Chocolate Gingers & Orange also won a One Star Great Taste Award in 2017.

Suzie Carlaw, Marketing Manager for Border Biscuits, said: “It’s fantastic to receive such prestigious recognition from the Great Taste Awards alongside some of the UK’s finest food and drink producers. Our Milk Chocolate Gingers have continued to move from strength to strength as part of our wider Gingers family and we are delighted that they all now hold a Great Taste Award.
“We work hard every day to ensure our biscuits are of the highest quality and we’re delighted the judges recognised our beautifully crafted biscuits in this year’s awards.”
