We are over the moon to have won not one, not two, not even three, but SIX stars at the 2017 Great Taste Awards for our Farrington’s Mellow Yellow products this year. The judges have awarded a 1 star Great Taste award to each of our Classic Vinaigrette, Honey & Mustard Dressing, Balsamic Vinegar Dressing, Chilli Oil, Mayonnaise and Garlic Mayonnaise. For most products, this is their second, or even third Great Taste award but for our Chilli Oil, this is the first time it has been awarded a Great Taste star and we couldn’t be happier!

The Great Taste awards are the world’s largest and most trusted food and drink awards, with a panel of over 500 experts judging each product, being described as the ‘Oscars of the food world’. This year, 12,366 food and drink products entered into these prestigious awards, with only the very best products being awarded the coveted stars.


Here’s what the judges had to say about our products:

Chilli Oil: A wonderful colour and clarity. The nuttiness of the oil is retained and a subtle hint of chilli makes a wonderful condiment for cooking.

Balsamic Dressing: Lovely fruity sweetness that lifted the palette.

Classic Vinaigrette: Herbs add to the complexity of flour with all the ingredients working in harmony.

Honey & Mustard Dressing: The honey flavour balances well with the mustard. Love the ‘pop’ of the mustard seeds too.

Mayonnaise: A very good colour, and the rapeseed oil really works well here. It’s light and creamy textured, and well seasoned with a light hand.

Garlic Mayonnaise: Good clean creamy mayo with a well-judged hint of garlic. Lovely richness and mouthfeel.


We’re so proud of all our brilliant products, so if you haven’t tried them all, head over to our Where to Buy page and find your local stockist!

The first jars of our NEW garlic mayonnaise are now starting to appear on the shelves. Packed full of roasted garlic pieces, Farrington’s MELLOW YELLOW Garlic Mayonnaise is gluten and additive free, created from our original MELLOW YELLOW Mayonnaise recipe using free-range eggs, and with all the health benefits of our cold pressed rapeseed oil, always at the heart of our products.

We are extremely excited to launch the latest addition to the MELLOW YELLOW range, and have had a really positive response from taste tests. People love the bursts of garlic in this truly artisan product. We are confident that the newest twist on our classic mayonnaise will not only be the perfect complement to barbeques and summer cuisine but will also become a popular store cupboard staple for all occasions.

As the end of the British winter approaches Farrington’s are looking ahead to summer days in readiness to dollop their delicious and versatile Garlic Mayonnaise for the barbeque season, a perfect accompaniment for a wide range of foods, including meat, fish and shellfish, a dip for crudités and canapés, in sandwiches and hamburgers, or with spicy dishes such as samosas, onion bhajis or kebabs.

Let us know what you think of the bold new taste, and share your favourite serving suggestions!


The Foodurchin has been a fan of ours for some time, he has used the oil on his blog in the past, and also very much likes the mayonnaise. Rumour has it that there will be a mayo tasting at some stage. www.foodurchin.blogspot.com


We are delighted to have won gold twice again this year in the Great Taste Gold 2011. The awards were given to our Garlic Mayonnaise which was launched last year and also to our new Balsamic Vinegar Dressing, launched earlier this year, combining Farrington’s MELLOW YELLOW rapeseed oil and British apple balsamic vinegar, garlic and basil.

The Great Taste Awards are highly regarded within the food industry, with over 7400 products being entered for judging over a rigorous two-month period. Before gold is awarded a minimum of twelve experts must discuss and agree on the winner. Consumers and retailers alike recognise Great Taste Award winners as being products they can trust.

Duncan recieved his first Great Taste Award in 2006 for Farrington’s MELLOW YELLOW cold pressed rapeseed oil and is delighted to have won the latest awards and to have Northamptonshire once again rewarded for producing great artisan food. His entire range of dressings and mayonnaises have now been individually awarded Great Taste Awards, making this year’s awards especially exciting.

We are delighted that our Classic Vinaigrette has been awarded the top three-star gold award and our mayonnaise a one star gold in the recent Great Taste Awards 2010.

We’ve been playing around with this for some time, eggs, oil and tears have literally gone into it. Eli’s been busy mixing, whilst Duncan and the rest of the team have been busy tasting. We’ve tried it on salads (of course); in sandwiches; on chips; and dipped many a spoon in. At last we now have a new mayonnaise to be proud of, and something your customers will want to buy!

This classic Mayonnaise is uncompromising on health, taste, and quality. Using Farrington’s award winning MELLOW YELLOW® cold pressed rapeseed oil as the base; which is naturally low in saturated fat, full of Omega 3 and combining British free range eggs, a hint of Dijon mustard, and a lemony sharpness, this additive free mayonnaise will brilliantly complement any food.
