The sofi Awards, presented by the National Association for the Specialty Food Trade, are considered the top honor in the $75 billion specialty food industry. "sofi" stands for Specialty Outstanding Food Innovation.
The sofi Awards, now in their 40th year, are open to members of the NASFT, a not-for-profit trade association for food artisans, importers and entrepreneurs. The awards recognize excellence across 32 categories, from Outstanding Appetizer, Antipasto, Salsa or Dip, to Outstanding Vinegar. This year's contest was the most competitive yet, with 2,520 entries overall.
"With unprecedented competition for the sofi Awards this year, the finalists are true reflections of the passion, dedication and creativity our members are bringing to their products today," says NASFT President Ann Daw.
"The sofi Awards ceremony at the Summer Fancy Food Show will be a highlight." The judges evaluated the entries on numerous attributes, including quality, taste, innovation, packaging, ingredients and pricing. The selection of finalists took place over eight days in two sessions.
