We at Foods are proud to announce that our White Flour Tortillas, Whole Wheat Flour Tortillas, and Corn Tortillas were judged to be the “Best Tasting” tortillas in each of their respective categories by Institute, and independent, chef-based organizations dedicated to recognizing and honoring the best food products. The ACI National Chef Board, comprised of world-renowned leaders in the culinary community and ACI’s National Culinary Director and Flavor and Sensory Specialist developed the rigorous double-blind judging process used to evaluate thousands of products every year and award only the best products in the marketplace its prestigious Best Taste Award and Best of Class Award.
The Evaluation Process
All products selected for rigorous testing are identified and purchased by ACI at local supermarkets. In the testing lab, products are stripped of all brand identification and presented to the chef-judges with no identification except a bar code. Together, the chef-judges establish the judging criteria for the category and then evaluate the products independently in private cubicles using proprietary software at www.rtotech.com. The judges’ scores are captured electronically and tabulated by the computer to determine the category winner. Only one product in each food or food-related category is selected as an ACI Award winner. Each year ACI’s chef-panels judge hundreds of categories containing thousands of products to bestow the ACI Awards for Best Taste (retail food and beverage), Best Product (retail food-related equipment), and Best of Class (professional foodservice food and equipment).
