We’re happy to announce that our Madagascar and Costa Rica chocolate bars are gold winners of the 2013 Good Food Awards. The awards ceremony was held at the iconic Ferry Building in San Francisco on Friday, January 18 2013. The Good Food Awards recognizes artisan food products that are exceptional in taste and socially and environmentally responsible. The awards ceremony was followed by an open table reception at the Ferry Building where award winning products were available for sample and company owners were accessible to the public.
About the Good Food Awards Chocolate Category
“A growing number of American chocolate makers are working closely with cacao farmers around the world and creating a transcontinental food community that is raising the bar on quality while stimulating farming economies around the globe. Eligible entrants craft Good Chocolate from beans or liquor using no artificial ingredients or genetically modified soy lecithin, and make efforts to know their cacao farmers, understand their supply chains and source sustainably grown cacao beans.”
“The Good Food Awards would not be possible without the generous support of its many partners. We would like to specially thank Founding Partner Whole Foods Market, as well as Good Food Awards Lead Sponsors Williams-Sonoma and the San Francisco Ferry Building. The generous support of Bi-Rite Market, the Wisconsin Milk Marketing Board, New Resource Bank, HUB Bay Area, CUESA, Dominic Phillips Event Marketing and Veritable Vegetable is also critical to the success of the Good Food Awards.”
