They received two stars for their Mixed Herb Vegan Mayo and one star for their Roasted Garlic & Herb Vegan Mayo. The awards, which are largely regarded as the “Oscars of the food industry” are the world’s largest food & drink awards, with over 12,500 entries to this year’s awards from around the globe.
Just 1,294 products were awarded a coveted two stars – indicating that judges dubbed it above and beyond delicious – with 144 judges including food critics, chefs, cooks, restauranteurs, buyer, retailers and producers tasting each and every product entered. A Little Bit’s Vegan Mayos are the newest addition to their range of condiments, all of which are made using fresh herbs with the aim of showcasing their versatility and ability to bring extra flavour to a wide range of dishes.
Laura Bounds, owner of A Little Bit, commented “ We are delighted that our Vegan Mayos have been recognised at this year’s Great Taste Awards, especially as they are our most recently launched products. We wanted to create a range of mayos which provided a substitute for those looking for an egg-free alternative to traditional mayonnaise whilst also being full of flavour and appealing to all tastes, not just those following a vegan diet.”
Having taken on the company last year and relocated it to Kent alongside her existing businesses, Kent Crisps (also a winner at this year’s Great Taste Awards) and Kentish Oils, at Highland Court Farm near Canterbury, Laura has strong growth ambitions for the company, which currently supplies direct to consumer via its online shop as well as to independent farm shops, delis & other outlets across the country. Laura adds “As we have seen over recent months, there is a growing market for those looking for good quality, products, with a good, ambient shelf life and made by independent and local businesses. Pair this with A Little Bit’s approach of using only fresh herbs and a wide product range including pasta sauces, ketchups, dips, dressings and now mayos, and we really do offer something for everyone, whilst making cooking at home just a little bit easier.”
