The Good Food Awards recognize businesses in the food industry who are taking care of the commons for future generations, strengthening their communities and building international relations with direct trade and above fair trade prices for cocoa, coffee and spices. Finalists from across the 16 categories embody what it means to be good global citizens, eschewing carbon-emitting fertilizers and pesticides, favoring practices that build soil health and sourcing local ingredients with low transportation-related carbon footprints.
The 401 products from 324 outstanding food and drink crafters first rose to the top in a blind tasting of 2,035 entries by 262 bakers, makers, farmers, journalists and chefs; then passed a rigorous vetting to confirm they meet Good Food Awards standards regarding supply chain transparency and environmentally sound agricultural practices. An additional 37 high scoring products were disqualified for not meeting the sustainability standards.
The Winners will be announced on Friday, January 11, 2019, at a 1,000 person gala in the historic San Francisco War Memorial & Performing Arts Center, followed by two days of celebration including the public Good Food Awards
Marketplace and the industry-only Good Food Mercantile. A limited number of tickets are available to join the Winners and honorary host Alice at the Awards Ceremony.
About Piquillo Hijole Pepper Sauce
We love the deeply rich flavor of roasted Piquillo peppers. So much so that we decided to make them the base of our newest pepper sauce.
We blend those beautiful peppers with fresh-roasted garlic and onions and rice bran oil for this incredibly addictive rich and creamy sauce. Then, hint of habaneros for a bite that keeps you coming back for more. It’s perfect on EVERYTHING! Go ahead, compare it to the sriracha in your pantry!
