Our fee

  • As reviewing products is time-intensive and requires us to find tasters, we charge for a Review. Please note this does NOT guarantee you a favourable Review.
  • If you would also like a précis of the review added to our Newsletter (which has over 20,000 subscribers) as well as Facebook (over 10,000 followers), Twitter or X (over 8,000 followers) and Instagram (over 7,500 followers), that service is available for an extra fee.

The benefits to you

  • Associated with a well-known and highly-regarded nutrition expert. 
  • Your Review stays forever on the Foodwatch site.
  • Searchable by Google and other search engines; the Foodwatch site has been around since 1996 and ranks well on Google - so your review quickly appears on page one of Search Results.
  • Permanent links back to your website or product page.
  • Pack shots - three guaranteed, but often more, depending on how photographable your product is.
  • Nutrition Information Panels  and Ingredient Lists so my readers can see everything.
  • Honest and practical assessment from someone sensible and moderate. 

Let my readers FALL IN LOVE with your product.

Foodwatch Review Criteria

clipboardCatherine's Reviews have four main areas – nutrition, convenience, taste and sustainability. Nutrition is our big thing so it gets a score out of 20, then Taste, Convenience and Sustainability each get a score out of 10. This gives an overall score out of 50 to earn a Foodwatch Apple rating.

Foodwatch Apples range from 0 Apples (a terrible score) up to 10 Apples (brilliant).
