The Specialty Food Association (SFA) revealed the winners of its 50th Annual sofi™ Awards, a celebration of culinary excellence and creativity.
One hundred and two specialty food products were awarded Gold, and New Product, trophies.
Available only to product-qualified members of the SFA, the sofi Awards were judged at the Food Innovation Center at Rutgers University (FIC), the SFA's partner for the awards. FIC experts evaluated products using anonymous tastings across 47 categories using criteria that included flavor, appearance, texture, aroma, ingredient quality, and innovation. 102 specialty food products were awarded Gold, and New Product, trophies.
The sofi Product of the Year Award and New Product of the Year Awards will be announced Sunday, June 12, at the 2022 Summer Fancy Food Show, the largest B2B-only specialty food and beverage show in the US. Registration for the Summer Fancy Food Show is at specialtyfood.com. The event is trade-only.
