Broadway Bagels, Winner Of Great Taste Awards 2009

Broadway Bagels from Dungarvan, Co. Waterford is celebrating after winning 2 prestigious Great Taste Awards. Broadway Bagels has been presented with 2 coveted Gold Great Taste Awards for its Rosie's Chocolate Chip Brownies and Rosie's Savoury Bagel Chips.

Rosie's Broadway Bagels is a premium range of preservative-free New York style bagels sold in freezers cabinets in Tesco, Superquinn, Supervalu, Spar as well as several independent shops nationwide. This year sees the expansion of the Rosie's range into premium American offerings, including brownies, cookies, soft pretzels and bagel chips.

Rosie Sheehan, managing director of Broadway Bagels, who hails from New York said: "We are so pleased with this award. Winning a Great Taste Award recognizes the craft and enthusiasm that goes into making premium food and drink. We are delighted to bring recognition to Ireland, which is known for it's fresh and innovative premium food!"

The Great Taste Awards judging standards, devised by the Guild of Fine Food, are the most rigorous in the UK. Every entry is blind tasted by teams of experts. By the time it earns gold, it will have been assessed by at least three different teams.

Bob Farrand of the Guild of Fine Food, said: "Lovers of fine food and drink only pay for the best if they're certain what they're buying is the best. Every food with a Great Taste Award gold has been independently proven to be just that - and it tastes great too"
