Recognizing excellence in specialty foods from around the world since 1972, the sofi™ Awards have been called "the Oscars of specialty food." They’re watched closely by everyone in the $110 billion specialty food industry because they open the door to the kind of game-changing recognition that puts new flavors on the map—and on the shelf.
The Retailer Awards competition honors outstanding leading specialty food retailers who are nominated and selected by a panel of Specialty Food Association members, consisting of manufacturers, distributors, importers, and retailers who review and select the finalists and winners.
Specialty Food Association has created a Hall of Fame for the specialty food industry. The Hall’s Mission is to “honor individuals whose accomplishments, impact, contributions, innovations, and successes within the specialty food industry deserve praise and recognition.”
