A Bulgarian company named “Harmonica” which made goat’s milk curd won the most prominent award at the world’s most authoritative taste awards, “The great taste awards”. The international experts have given three stars to the (cottage cheese), commonly known as curd, made by Bulgarian company Harmonica.
Two more products of the identical Bulgarian brand lemonade and pretzel sticks with spelt were also awarded in this competition with one star each. For six years in a row, Bulgarian brand “Harmonica” stands among the winners of this competition, but for the first time, it has received three stars, the highest recognition.
During this competition, more than 14,000 products were tested in excellent evaluation. 4078 products received 1 star, 1237 products with 2 stars and 241 products received 3 stars for their remarkable good taste. A total of 11 Bulgarian products get awards, including Harmonica’s curd.
The Great Taste awards values taste above everything. The food products are tasted during the competition without seeing it wearing a blindfold. Following the strict criteria, each product has been removed from the packaging so no one can identify it before being considered. This year, more than 500 experts participating in this competition took over 90 days to judge foods and drinks from 110 nations across the globe at Dorset and London.
The most highly awarded product- Harmonica’s goat’s milk curd, is made from the organic Bulgarian milk from goats raised in the fresh air and under the mountain’s sun. It contains many proteins and can be enjoyed as a treat. Harmonica also gets applause for the delicately carbonated lemonade and pretzel sticks with spelt.
Lubomir Nokov, the co-founder of Harmonica, said, ” Getting three stars at the Great taste competition is a massive achievement for Harmonica; it’s proof that we are flourishing in our dream of offering clean food with superior taste to our consumers”.
He added, “The awards from this honourable forum are also a distinction for the invaluable gifts of Bulgarian nature, tradition and the work of Bulgarian producers. This global inspection makes us continue to follow our environmental conservation responsibility and support our hardworking Bulgarian farmers.”
