"The best of the best" – the sofi Award products!
These products are not just crafted with care and joy, but they have also been vetted by a national panel of top specialty food professionals. The sofi Awards honor the best of the best in specialty foods and beverages from members of the Specialty Food Association.
Each of our members brings a story with them.
A story of inspiration, challenge, opportunity and vision. A story with chapters still to be written. Though the stories are uniquely different, they wholeheartedly share our message of craft and care and joy.
