The Awards

Criteria

We believe Good Food is made with real ingredients, local wherever possible, and respect amongst the people whose work goes into creating it. Good Food is made with good animal husbandry and without the use of artificial ingredients, hormones, synthetic pesticides, herbicides and fertilizer or genetically modified ingredients.

Our criteria for entry, found on each entry form, reflects these beliefs yet also acknowledges that each industry is at a different point in the journey towards “perfect” sustainability, both environmental and social. We believe that the Awards can help move the food system towards greater sustainability and craftsmanship by working with the Good Food Awards Committees to create criteria for each industry that takes into account where the leaders in that industry are at and pushes them one step further.
