QUALITY HONEY AWARDS


 
 

CONTEST

All branded (not bulk) honeys available in retail stores are eligible to participate for the supreme honey award (London Honey Awards). The products to be evaluated must be in the appropriate condition for tasting and their distinctive information must be written out correctly and clearly on the label, i.e. they must be products ready to be sold to the consumer public. The contest’s organisational committee may request physical and chemical tests in cooperation with recognised laboratories, in order to verify that the products technically sound.

EVALUATION

The “blind” method is used for tasting the products, without packaging and without any type of distinctive feature visible. Each product is given a code number to ensure their reliable traceability. The samples are evaluated by the Jury Panel. Each judge carries out an organoleptic analysis of the products he tastes, and records a numerical rating on the evaluation sheet, which represents the general sense of enjoyment (which weighs the most in the final rating) as well as other criteria, such as appearance, odour, texture, flavour and mouth-feel.

The products are evaluated based on their distinct and individual properties and do not compete with each other.

HONEY AWARDS:

  • PLATINUM Honey Award, with ratings between 95,5 and 100
  • GOLD Honey Award, products with ratings between 85,5 and 95
  • SILVER Honey Award, products with ratings between 75,5 and 85
  • BRONZE Honey Award, products with ratings between 65 until 75
