2023 marks the thirteenth year of the Good Food Awards, established by the Good Food Foundation to celebrate and support “the growers, ranchers, makers and merchants stubbornly swimming upstream to create and share the kind of food we all want to eat: tasty, authentic and responsible.”

Winners will be announced on April 21 at the Good Food Awards ceremony in Portland, Ore. In 2022, Casero (charcuterie), Madhu Chocolate (chocolate), and Shār Snacks (snacks) all took home Good Food gongs.
