The Good Food Awards Now Accepting Submissions (Again)
Posted on August 21, 2012 by Mike
The Good Food Awards launches its third year with a call for entries August 5-31!
Seedling Projects, the “‘do tank’ for the food movement” behind the initiative, is inviting food producers from across the country to submit their beer, charcuterie, cheese, chocolate, coffee, pickles, preserves, pickles and – new this year – confections. A blind tasting with Alice Waters, Nell Newman, the food editors of Bon Appetit, and 130 other taste makers will determine who is recognized as the Good Food Award winners of 2013. The catch: everything must be produced in an environmentally and socially responsible manner.
Last year’s 99 winners received some unexpected perks, from special placements in Whole Foods Market and Williams Sonoma stores nationwide to media coverage in the San Francisco Chronicle, Washington Post and New York Times. All winners are honored in a gala ceremony and marketplace at the San Francisco Ferry Building and receive the Good Food Awards Seal to place on their winning products all year long.
You can review the sustainability criteria and enter online at www.goodfoodawards.org. The entry fee is $50, which goes to cover the sorting, storing and transporting of an anticipated 1,000 entries. Members of the brand new Good Food Merchants Guild get one free entry.
