GLRPPR Sector Resource: Good Food Awards

Title:
Good Food Awards

Abstract:
The Good Food Awards take a comprehensive view, honoring both responsible food production as well as superior taste, rather than treating these aspect separately. The Good Food Awards were created through a collaboration of food producers, farmers, food journalists and independent grocers organized by Seedling Projects. This team nominates judges from across the country to select over 100 winners from 5 regions of the country that are then honored at a special ceremony in San Francisco in January. To showcase the winners among the broader food-loving public, there is a vibrant Good Food Marketplace the day after the awards ceremony. Visitors to the marketplace can taste, buy and meet the producers behind theses award-winning foods, surrounded by the spectacular Saturday Farmers' Market at San Francisco's iconic Ferry Building. Good Food Awards will be given to winners in 11 categories: beer, charcuterie, cheese, chocolate, coffee, confections, pickles, preserve, spirits, oil and the newest category, honey. Awards will be given to producers and their food communities from each of five regions of the US. The Good Food Awards Seal, found on winning products, assures consumers they have found something exceptionally delicious that also supports sustainability and social good.
