Dairy very happy with gold stars

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

CHAL­FONT St Peter’s Tims Dairy has been awarded a to­tal of five golden stars for its prod­ucts at this year’s Great Taste awards.

The Great Taste Awards are held an­nu­ally and sam­ple more than 10,000 prod­ucts of all kinds in the food and drink in­dus­try, striv­ing to find the high­est qual­ity and best tast­ing prod­ucts in the UK.

Prod­ucts are blind tested by qual­i­fied judges from the sec­tor, who give their un­bi­ased opin­ions and feed­back.

Un­suc­cess­ful pro­duc­ers are given the feed­back for their prod­ucts so they know where to im­prove for next year.

The judges award the very best prod­ucts with one, two or three golden stars with the guide­line be­ing: “One star rep­re­sents a sim­ply de­li­cious prod­uct, judged by a min­i­mum of ten pal­ettes. Two stars in­di­cates an out­stand­ing prod­uct and three stars demon­strate a prod­uct that is fault­less – to­tally ex­quis­ite.”

One star was awarded to Tims Dairy’s but­ter­milk, with judges claim­ing it was de­li­cious on its own as well as be­ing won­der­ful for bak­ing.

Its Soured Cream won two stars, with judges com­ment­ing that it was “rich and smooth with well judged acid­ity”. The cream has a mild, fresh taste and is thick set, with no added su­gar.

Tims Dairy also achieved two stars for its bio-live Greek-style­nat­u­ral yo­gurt, which also has no added su­gar.

One judge com­mented that it was “silky smooth yo­gurt, beau­ti­ful acid­ity, lac­tic notes, thick and rich”.

Tims Dairy be­gan life in 1949 in cen­tral Lon­don, where it sup­plied its prod­ucts to lo­cal restau­rants and delis.

In 1996 they made a move to Den­ham Lane, Chal­font St Peter, in the foothills of the Chilterns, where all their pro­duc­tion still takes place.

The dairy is proud of its Greek her­itage, which still in­flu­ences its prod­ucts to this day.

Man­ag­ing di­rec­tor Chris Ti­moth­eou said: “We know how highly re­spected these awards are within the in­dus­try and by con­sumers alike, so you can imag­ine how de­lighted we are.”

“It’s been a good year for Gold Medals all round!”
