PROVIDENCE – Three local companies have been named finalists for the 2019 Good Food Awards.
The awards seek to reward food purveyors based on taste, and social and environmental excellency, the Good Food Foundation, the organization that runs the awards, said. Foods in a variety of categories are chosen each year for the award in 16 categories such as beer, charcuterie, honey, pantry and snacks.
The listed Rhode Island selections were three of 401 products named finalists from more than 2,000 entries for the 2019 awards.
The local finalists are as follows:
- Beth Bakes LLC for its Crispy Classic Gluten Free Crackers product in the category “Pantry”
- Sacred Cow Granola for its “The Holy Cow Granola Experience” product in the “Snacks” category (Sacred Cow’s parent company is A. B. Munroe Dairy Inc.)
- SanoBe Superfoods for its Hearty Hemp Peanut Butter product in the “Snacks” category (the company was previously awarded a Good Food Award in 2018). The company, which is incorporated as Live Well with Jenn B. LLC, is listed with the R.I. Department of State as having its principle office in Attleboro with a listed Johnston mailing address. Good Foods has designated the peanut butter company as a Rhode Island entity
The winners of the 2019 Good Food Awards will be announced on Jan. 11, 2019, and will be featured in a marketplace event held in San Francisco on Jan 13.
In addition to SanoBe Superfoods, Halvah Heaven won 2018 Good Food Awards. Daniele Inc. won Good Food Awards in both 2014 and 2015 for charcuterie products.
