It’s nearly time for the Soil Association Boom! awards for 2017. (I’m afraid nominations have closed, so it’s too late to suggest NGF as your favourite organic blogger – but nevertheless, you might appreciate the heads-up.) The Boom! awards are themselves award-winning, in a kind of never-ending virtuous circle of back-slapping, and they truly are fantastic. In their own words:
‘The awards are about finding and celebrating the amazing businesses producing, processing, serving, selling and delivering fully traceable, food as it should be.
Our categories cover the breadth of the organic market. We have also added some additional nomination categories this year to recognise rising stars, new products and businesses and organic farmers.’
Judging takes place at the start of May. The the results are announced on 5th July, so stick that date in your diary now.
Boom! awards: the categories
There are categories for organic food and drink of all kinds; for organic outlets, including restaurants, start-ups, online businesses and organic boxes; for organic heroes (farmers, marketers and bloggers); for the nation’s favourite organic products; and for the most convincingly organic cast member of The Archers. (Actually, I made the last one up, but I reckon it’s got to be Toby.)
Who won last year? Well, there are lots of categories, but here’s a taster:
Best food blogger: rebelrecipes.com
Best café: The Edinburgh Larder at Whitmuir Farm
Best toddler food: Quinola (which we stock)
Best pantry food: Hodmedod’s British carlin peas (again, stocked by us)
Make some noise about organic products
The Soil Association want everyone to ‘make some noise about organic’ – and we’re happy to oblige. At Naturally Good Food, we believe strongly in the virtues of organic food. We want a world where food production respects the environment and supports our own health. We want healthy soil, healthy rivers, healthy crops and healthy bodies. We like our food to taste nice, too.
You can see all our organic food here.
