Seedling Projects - a sustainable food advocacy group – organized the awards in collaboration with a variety of food producers, chefs, food writers and passionate food lovers.
Alexian owner Laurie Cummins said the company has long been committed to natural ingredients.
“We have been making wholesome, all-natural patés for over 29 years,” she said, adding, "it was such an exciting and rewarding experience to be recognized for the extra work we do to produce flavorful meat products that are wholesome as well!”
Alexian uses no artificial flavors, artificial colors, preservatives, fillers and no ingredients made with hormones or antibiotics.
A collection of 12 culinary expert judges selected winners based on several criteria. Entries came from craft food producers throughout the United States and the winners represent the tastiest products produced in a natural and sustainable manner.
“The Good Food Awards proves we have emerged from the low-fat dark ages of the 80s and 90s, into a culture looking for real food, made with responsible ingredients, that is all about great taste,” said judge and culinary author Bruce Aidells.
