Organic food awards open
Organic meat producers are being offered the chance for some recognition with the launch of this year’s Soil Association (SA) Organic Food Awards.
Nominations for the awards, which are in their 23rd year, are now open and the SA said they provided the opportunity for producers to showcase their best-quality organic food and drink.
A spokesman for the SA said: “With the help of an expert panel of judges, including chefs, restaurateurs, food writers and specialists, alongside celebrity foodies, the aim of these awards is to create greater public awareness of the values of organic production, positive food culture, and the range and quality of organic food and drink available.”
The awards are open to any product registered as organic and certified by a recognised organic certification body within the EU. The deadline for entering the awards is Friday 3 June 2011.
