Taste of Staffordshire - Quality Marque

The Taste of Staffordshire accreditation is only used by Staffordshire's best food & drink businesses

Look out for the Taste of Staffordshire Quality Marque - it's your guarantee that the businesses displaying the logo have achieved the highest standards for the quality of their food and drink.

Each year qualified inspectors anonymously visit the establishments to judge if they make the grade, for the quality of their food and drink, customer service and promotion, and use of local produce.

We are now working in partnership with NFU Mutual's Stone agency to celebrate the county's best food & drink businesses and give you the best possible experience when you go out for a bite to eat.

If you run a food and drink business and would like to find out more about gaining the Taste of Staffordshire Quality Marque contact or 01785 277397.
