TWO local food producers have tasted sweet success in this year's Heart of England Fine Food Diamond Awards.
Just Crisps, near Rugeley, took the top spot in the snacks category for its jalapeno crisps and won the Special "Grow" Diamond Award with a focus on export.
Managing director of the family firm Anthony Froggatt said: "We are thrilled to win another Diamond Award from HEFF for Just Crisps.
This recognises the hard work and commitment that goes into producing a great-tasting Staffordshire crisp," he said.
"To also win the Special Award for Growth within the exporting market helps demonstrate our commitment to ensure not only the local market enjoys this great British product but foreign markets also get to enjoy Just Crisps."
The Kitchens Fine Food Company in Hixon won the condiments and preserves category for its hot garlic pickle. Neil Whitehead from the company said: "These awards are a fantastic recognition of the dedication to high quality that artisan producers can offer."
