In an interview with CNA, Ke said that even though three marmalades won Double Gold awards, the others being from the Netherlands and Syria, hers was the only one to receive a full score of 20 from the judges.
The jury was made up of journalists, business leaders and people well respected in the food industry. Submissions were evaluated from mid February with the winners announced on March 15, according to the event’s website. [FULL STORY]
