CATCH THE BUZZ – Good Food Awards Is Excited to Announce The Launch of its Ninth Year With a Call for Entries July 2-31! Submit Your Honey!

The Good Food Awards invites food producers from across the country to submit their beer, charcuterie, cheese, chocolate, cider, coffee, confections, elixirs, honey, oils, pickles, preserves, preserved fish, spirits, pantry items and – new this year  – snacks! (Snacks, you ask? We’re talking popcorn, granola, chips, crackers and more!)

A blind tasting with a judge panel composed of over 250 food crafters, chefs and food writers will determine which products become the 2019 Good Food Award Winners. The catch: everything must be produced with a commitment to environmental and social responsibility, supporting local economies and the planet.

A short online entry form will be available at from July 2-31. The products will be sent for judging in September.  The entry fee is $75, which covers the cost of processing, sorting, storing and transporting over 2,000 anticipated entries. Submission Criteria for the Honey Category can be found at this link:
