Ynys Môn Assembly Member Rhun ap Iorwerth congratulated producers from Anglesey for their recent success in the Great Taste Awards 2015, at an event to mark the awards in Cardiff Bay this week.
Melyn Môn from Llaneilian received two stars for their Shiitake Mushroom Butter, and Caws Rhydydelyn and Halen Môn both received one star for their Anglesey Blue and Juniper-smoked Halen Môn respectively.
Speaking after the event, Rhun ap Iorwerth said:
“It was great to be able to congratulate Melyn Môn on their success in the Great Taste Awards this week and to hear of their exciting plans for the future. It was a great pleasure as well to be able to taste the delicious winning produce!
“Congratulations to Caws Rhydydelyn, who were also there representing Anglesey, and who have now opened a successful deli in Cardiff, giving people from our capital city a taste of Ynys Môn.
“We really do have a great range of quality food and drink on the island, and I’m pleased that local producers have the opportunity at events such as these to promote their produce and to receive the recognition they deserve.”
Julie Morgan of Melyn Môn commented:
“We had a fantastic day at the Great Taste Award Winners event in Cardiff. We had tremendous interest in our flavoured butters, and met some really high profile buyers. It was also great to see Anglesey AM Rhun ap Iorwerth and share our vision for a brand new product range…watch this space!”
