Foothills’ Apollo Olive Oil a finalist in Good Food Awards

The Good Food Awards celebrate the kind of food we all want to eat: tasty, authentic and responsibly produced. They grant awards to outstanding American food producers and the farmers who provide their ingredients.

We were glad to see Apollo Olive Oil of Oregon House, which we have featured in our magazine, was a finalist.

The Good Food Awards host an annual Awards Ceremony and Marketplace at the iconic Ferry Building in San Francisco to honor the Good Food Award recipients who push their industries towards craftsmanship and sustainability while enhancing our agricultural landscape and building strong communities.

In its fourth year, Good Food Awards will be given to winners in ten categories: beer, charcuterie, cheese, chocolate, coffee, confections, pickles, preserve, spirits and our newest category, oil.

Awards will be given to producers and their food communities from each of five regions of the US. The Good Food Awards seal, found on winning products, assures consumers they have found something exceptionally delicious that also supports sustainability and social good.

Congratulations to the 2014 Good Food Award Finalists and their food communities for leading the way towards a tasty, authentic and responsible food system. Stay tuned for the Winner announcement in January, 2014.
