The Soil Association has begun the New Year with the launch of the new BOOM Awards (Best of Organic Market) celebrating great taste, exceptional quality, innovation and creativity in organic products and places to eat. The awards open for entries on Tuesday 5th January 2016, with the presentation ceremony taking place on 11th May 2016.
Clare McDermott, business development director of Soil Association Certification said; “We’re really excited to launch our new BOOM Awards – we’re going to make some noise for the very best in organic and raise the profile of new and existing organic businesses. With over 1,000 new products licensed with Soil Association Certification in 2015 we know that there is fantastic innovation going on in the organic sector. Coupled with a panel of expert judges and the amazing Anna Jones, this year’s BOOM Awards are naturally worth shouting about!”
According to the Soil Association, growth in the organic market is coming from new consumers who value innovation, creativity and craftsmanship in food production and presentation and says the awards reflect this.
