Soil Association Organic Food Awards 2012 03.05.12
The Soil Association Organic Food Awards, now in their 24th year, are the most prestigious and widely respected in the organic sector. Please give a hand to promote the best quality organic food and drink by nominating your favourite product.
By nominating your favourite organic food or drink you stand a chance to win one of the following prizes:
Meal for four at the Duke of Cambridge Pub, London,
Meal for four at Riverford’s Field Kitchen, Devon,
A gift voucher for £100 to spend at The Royal Oak Pub, Swindon,
A case of the winning wine, beer or cider from the 2012 Organic Food Awards,
A range of organic textile products from Ochre and Ocre and Devon Duvets.
The awards are open to all organic food and drink products that are certified by a recognised certifier within the EU.
There are 34 categories this year - from poultry, preserves and pasta to cheese, chocolate and cider - extended to allow a broader spectrum of products. All judging of entries is done blind by an expert panel of judges.
This year there are two special dairy awards for Best Organic Farm Dairy and Best Organic Dairy Group. The five best entries from the blind judging will go through another round of assessment. The winners’ story will then be used to promote the many reasons why organic food and drink is so unique.
The Soil Association will also be giving special awards in three other categories – Best Low Carbon Farm, Best School Food and Best Local Initiative.
Commenting on the awards, Geetie Singh, judge and owner of the Duke of Cambridge organic pub, London said:
“The Organic Food Awards are a celebration of great organic food that is produced sustainably and to the highest welfare and environmental standards, food that has top quality provenance and an interesting story to tell.”
