Winners of 10 Gold Stars in total at this year's Great Taste Awards 2015. “Raspberry Sorbet” achieved the highest accolade of 3 Stars – made with South Downs Natural Mineral Water!

Well done… the taste of summer!"
The world’s most coveted blind-tasted food competition, Great Taste, has just released the Great Taste award winners of 2015 and first-time entrants Sussex Ice Cream Company are celebrating after taking home an incredible total of 10 stars for their products. The ONLY ice cream company in Sussex to have achieved 3 Stars for one of their products, Sussex Ice Cream Company will carry their gold and black Great Taste stars with pride.
The awards are judged by over 400 of the most discerning palates belonging to food critics, chefs, cooks, restauranteurs, producers and a host of food writers and journalists, who work tirelessly to blind-taste a total of 10,000 different foods and drinks. Great Taste is widely acknowledged as the most respected food accreditation scheme for artisan and speciality food producers, and so a Great Taste star is not only a badge of honour for the producers, but more importantly, a signpost to a truly exceptional product.
"We decided 2015 would be the perfect year to enter the awards to celebrate the success of our new business and to demonstrate our confidence in the quality of our ice creams and sorbets.
Now in our second year of artisan SALSA accreditation, we have secured a contract with the Southern Co-Operative and various highly-rated eateries and retail units, and are looking forward to seeing our products on local Southern Co-Operative shelves soon." Daniel Clarke, Chef and Director, Sussex Ice Cream Company
"Our promise is always the same- flavours that excite and tantalise the taste buds! Our Ice Creams and Sorbets contain only the very best quality local ingredients, like South Downs Water and you won’t find any artificial flavours, colourings or preservatives in them.
We are delighted to receive 10 stars in total, including three stars for our Raspberry Sorbet. This is a first for an ice cream company in Sussex and makes it one of only 130 Great Taste products to have received this accolade."
