Seeding Projects, a self-styled “do tank” that works collaboratively to support the sustainable food movement, recently announced the winners of the third annual Good Food Awards in San Francisco. Our of 1,350 applicants from across the country, representing nine categories of Good Food, including beer, charcuterie (i.e. cooked pork and/or cold meat products), cheese, chocolate, coffee, confections, pickles, preserves and spirits, 114 winners were chosen.
The awards were created to “redefine ‘good food’ as being tasty, authentic and responsible”.
To be eligible for a Good Food Award, producers in every category must follow criteria that are strict but realistic. The main ingredients used in Good Preserves, for example, must be foraged or grown locally, with respect for seasonality and without any synthetic inputs. Sugar, fruit and other ingredients used in small quantities, however, are not required to be sourced locally or grown organically.
