The Good Food Awards is excited to announce the launch of its fourth year with a call for entries July 1-31!
The Good Food Merchants Guild invites food producers from across the country to submit their beer, charcuterie, cheese, chocolate, coffee, confections, pickles, preserves, spirits and – new this year – oils.
A blind tasting with 150 producers, chefs and food writers will determine which products become the 2014 Good Food Award winners. The catch: everything must be produced with a commitment to environmental and social responsibility. This means eliminating the use of synthetic inputs, ensuring supply chain transparency, and supporting local economies.
A short online entry form and a guide to the sustainability criteria are available at www.goodfoodawards.org from July 1-31.
The entry fee is $60, which goes to cover the cost of sorting, storing, and transporting an anticipated 1,800 entries. To receive a free entry and become part of an emerging network of tasty, authentic and responsible businesses, join the Good Food Merchants Guild. The Guild distinguishes and unites mission-driven craft food businesses. To learn more, visit www.goodfoodmerchantsguild.org.
