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.
Consumers have grown familiar with seeing the terms natural, “organic”, and essential oils in their products. Whether they apply to our food, personal care or cosmetics, we’ve come to expect a level of quality when we hear or see these on the packaging.
But all is not always what it seems.
