ARYZTA Food Solutions, the in-store bakery specialist, is celebrating after scooping two ‘Great Taste’ awards for products in its convenience channel hot food-to-go range.

The company has received recognition for the quality and flavour of its pastries and been awarded accreditations for both its Vegan Sausage Roll and Gyros Chicken Pide products.

“We’re delighted to have been accredited by the internationally-recognised Great Taste awards, organised by the Guild of Fine Food, recognising our efforts in bringing a delicious range of on-trend products to the hot food-to-go fixture in convenience stores,” says Paul Maxwell, Marketing Manager at ARYZTA Food Solutions UK.

Judges commented on the ‘wonderful homemade appearance’ of ARYZTA’s Vegan Sausage Roll and ‘lovely herby aroma with a good hearty bite.’ Judges were also impressed with the Middle Eastern inspired Gyros Chicken Pide (pronounced pea-deh), a Turkish stone-baked pizza style flat bread, remarking on the artisan appearance of the product and the ‘enormous flavour enjoyment’.


“Retailers can look forward to driving in-store bakery sales with hot food-to-go products from ARYZTA, including the award-winning Vegan Sausage Roll and Gyros Chicken Pide, both of which are delivering the quality and taste which convenience channel shoppers are looking for,” adds Maxwell.


Descriptors for the award-winning products are as follows:


  • Stone Baked Gyros Chicken Pide – 140g – Case size 18
