Wetherspoon has been recognised, in an annual awards ceremony, for one of its dessert menu favourites.
The company were this year’s winner of the ‘Best Bramley Apple Foodservice Product’, for the Gluten-free Bramley Apple, Pear and Raspberry Crumble, at the 2012 Brammy Awards.
The Brammy Awards recognise those individuals and companies that have made the greatest contributions to the success of Bramley during the last year.
The Best Foodservice Product was awarded to JD Wetherspoon for their Bramley Apple, Pear and Raspberry Crumble, which the judges felt combined strong taste of Bramley with outstanding flavour and texture.
Lewis Brigden, Wetherspoon food purchasing manager, said: “The awards are designed to recognise the quality attributes of products that utilise the Great British apple.
“Our product was described as a ‘…fantastic example of the versatility of the Bramley apple’ and ‘… Wetherspoon have supported British agriculture by consistently delivering the product to the masses’.
“We’ve sold just over 73 tonnes of Bramley apple in our crumble in the last 12 months.”
