Following last year’s massive success, the Soil Association is opening the BOOM Awards 2017 (Best of Organic Market) for entries. The BOOMs will make some noise about organic and celebrate the very best in organic products and places to eat. This year, Rachel’s is pleased to announce that it will be sponsoring the Best Organic Independent Retailer category, championing leading organic retailers throughout the UK.
The BOOM awards celebrate the people and businesses working so hard to give us food as it should be. They will be judged by an independent panel of well-known experts in good food and the awards also include categories for the growing range of places organic food is available – from restaurants to caterers, retailers to box schemes. The public can also nominate their organic heroes; the people who really make a difference every day. All organic food and drink businesses are encouraged to enter.
Rosie Birkett the cook, food writer and author is this year’s celebrity ambassador. The awards are now open (Monday 6 February 2017).
The Awards will provide a platform for all businesses looking to profile their organic ranges as well as an opportunity to see who’s who in organic. Judging takes place on 2-5 May 2017 in central London with a collection of high profile judges on the panel. Anyone in the organic industry or who has organic as part of their business can enter the BOOM Awards and there is a discount available for Soil Association Certification licensees who apply.
