The Great Taste Awards are known for their strict judging. Products are blind-tasted by over 500 culinary experts including chefs, buyers, food writers and retailers who judge solely on taste, ensuring only truly delicious and innovative products win.

Judge’s comments: “Thick and chunky, this sauce is packed full of sundried tomatoes with a soft, melt-in-your-mouth texture. The flavour of the herbs, cheese and garlic give a wonderful added depth to the already umami rich tomatoes. The tomatoes have a good bite and the oil seems very light.”

"We're delighted to receive 2-Star Great Taste Award 2021 for our Pesto Siciliano!" said Ernesto Coppola, CEO of Coppola Foods. "This award is corroborate our mission: making good food better and reflects our team's devotion to using the finest ingredients and creating products that elevate any dishes.

Our Pesto Siciliano recipe features crushed Italian sundried tomatoes, garlic, extra virgin olive oil, pine nuts, and cheese. The name "pesto" itself reflects the traditional method of preparation, which involved crushing or grinding the ingredients in a marble mortar with a circular motion using a wooden pestle. Originating from the Sicilian isle in southern Italy, this vibrant pesto is ideal for stirring through a plate of pasta, adding depth to soups, gravies, and casseroles, or even enhancing the flavor of cooked vegetables.
