For a long time, certifications for responsible food production and awards for superior taste have remained distinct—one honors social and environmental responsibility, while the other celebrates flavor. The Good Food Awards recognize that truly good food—the kind that brings people together and builds strong, healthy communities—contains all of these ingredients. We take a comprehensive view, honoring people who make food that is delicious, respectful of the environment, and connected to communities and cultural traditions.
The entry period for the 2017 Good Food Awards closed on August 1, 2016, with over 2,000 tasty entries this year. Our annual blind tasting was held on September 18, 2016, where our fine panels of judges determined what’s most delicious in each food category. Winners will be announced at the Awards Ceremony on January 20, 2017, but in the meantime, check out the Finalists here!
