2017 GOOD FOOD AWARDS FINALISTS

November 15, 2016

Official Press Release from Good Food Awards
11.14.2016

Representing 14 categories and 38 states, all Finalists rose to the top in a blind tasting of the 2,059 entries from nearly  every state  and  passed a rigorous vetting to confirm they met specific Good Food Awards standards around  environmentally sound agriculture practices, good animal husbandry, sourcing transparency and responsible  relationships throughout the supply chain. Amongst their ranks are Nadia Hubbi in California, a Muhammara crafter  keeping her Syrian family’s tradition alive; Nacxitl Gaxiola in Brooklyn, whose company was created to honor the  traditional salsas, moles, escabechese and adobes of Mexico; Paul Lieggi in Oregon working with the fishermen and  women of the Nez Perce, Umatilla, Yakima and Warm Springs tribes to source hoop caught Chinook Salmon for his  aromatic hardwood smoked salmon; and Ann and Dan Trudel, a husband and wife farmer and preserver growing and  pickling organic brussels sprouts in the heart of rural Ohio. These 291 Finalists - and the hundreds of farmers, ranchers,  fishermen and colleagues they collaborate with - are actively building the sort of world we want to live in.
