Juan Pedro Domecq entered its suberb Bellota 100% Ibérico ham in the 2014 “Great Taste Awards” competition, organized by the U.K Guild of Fine Foods, with the outmost success: Juan Pedro Domecq bellota 100% IBerico ham has obtained the three maximum possible awards in 2014:

  • A three gold stars GTA Award;
  • The  nomination as one of the “Top 50 Foods in Britain” (50 best gourmet products of the year);
  •  A Golden Fork Award to the best “Charcuterie Product of the year”

This Golden Fork is our second “Oscar” for our top product, Juan Pedro Domecq bellota 100% IBerico ham, as in 2012 we were honored to receive the Golden Fork to the “Best Imported Speciality”. Also we are proud to be one of the very few companies, and certainly the sole Spanish Company, to have earned three consecutive Three star gold GTA awards for the same product.

In 2014, competition was again tough: around 10,000 products were entered by producers, with only 153 foods achieving the highest and most coveted rating, the three stars. Additionally, there were 697 foods grabbing 2 stars and 2.531 were awarded a 1 star. That means only 34% of entries were accredited – very competitive! 

And it doesn’t stop there, of those 153 products awarded with the coveted three stars, 50 were chosen as the TOP 50 foods and drinks and invited to participate in the “Golden Fork Award Ceremony” which took place on September the 8th. In that ceremony Top 50 winners had the chance to taste many of the winning delicacies as well as to enjoy the award winning show. By the end of the night only 18, amongst the 50 had received a “Golden Fork Award”, the highest recognition of their quality and work. One of them was 100% Iberico bellota ham by Juan Pedro Domecq.

This has been a total triumph for Juan Pedro Domecq, a recognition to many years of hard work in search of the best quality 100% IBerico bellota ham, that they are now offering worldwide.
