Wild Appetite, one of New Zealand’s leading fine food manufacturers, has been awarded seven gold medals at the prestigious 2011 Great Taste Awards in London.
Wild Appetite Executive Director, Peter McCracken, says; “We are delighted to have won awards in seven different categories at what is commonly referred to as the Oscars of the food world.
“Not only does it position our products alongside the best in the world, but it recognises all of the hard work, passion and dedication that go into creating each and every one of our products.
“Consumers worldwide recognise Great Taste Award winners as being brands and products they can trust, which we hope will in turn grow our sales internationally,” says Peter.
Wild Appetite winners at the 2011 Great Taste Awards, organised by the UK Guild of Fine Food, include:
Wild Appetite Strawberry & Champagne Chocolate Sauce
Wild Appetite “The Original’’ Barbecue Sauce
Wild Appetite Mexican Chilli Sauce

The Wild Appetite range of products includes: sauces, dressings, marinades, New Zealand wine jellies, chutneys and other specialty condiments along with a range of sauté cooking sauces, a recent addition to its Urban Appetite range which are all verified gluten free with no added salt.
The Great Taste Awards are now in their 18th year and are going from strength to strength.  A total of 7,481 products were entered from 1600 different companies for the 2011 Great Taste Awards. It took a total of 350 experts and 34 days to blind taste test all of the entries and decide which entries would achieve the coveted gold awards.
Chairman for The Great Taste Awards, Bob Farrand, says; “Winning Gold in the country’s largest and most respected independent food accreditation scheme is a massive pat on the back for any producer – independent proof their products are of the highest quality. 
“We provide constructive feedback from our expert judging teams and for many, winning gold is exactly what’s needed to help grow their business. Every winner should feel very proud that their hard work has been rewarded.”
Wild Appetite products are available in selected supermarkets throughout New Zealand, including specialty food and gift stores.
