The Good Food Foundation Announces The 2024 Good Food Award Winners

Portland, Ore. (April 30, 2024)– The Good Food Foundation is proud to recognize 215 exceptional food and drink crafters in 18 categories from across the United States as this year’s Good Food Award Winners. Chosen through a rigorous blind tasting and sustainability vetting process from nearly 2,000 entries, these exceptional makers rose to the top on the basis of taste, while also demonstrating an outstanding commitment to sustainable environmental and social practices. 

Thirty-eight states are represented among the 2024 Good Food Award Winners. More than half of this year’s Winners are women-owned businesses, and nearly one fifth (17%) are BIPOC-owned. The 2024 Winners include Heart & Seoul Food Co., a Korean beef bone broth made with locally-sourced bones from small-scale, sustainable farmers in upstate New York; Alaska-based Crooked Creek Birch, whose syrups are harvested from Alaskan birch trees; and Aromatic Spice Blends, whose peanut garlic chutney is made from a family recipe by a professional scientist in Virginia.

Now in its 14th year, the Good Food Awards were held for the second time in Portland, Oregon on Monday, April 29, in a jubilant and delicious celebration. The Awards Ceremony opened with Oregon Congressman Earl Blumenauer, who welcomed a full house of 600 guests to the celebration. Speakers included Dana Cowin, best known for her two decades as the Editor-in-Chief of Food & Wine Magazine, was the evening’s MC, and Ari Weinzweig, co-founder of the legendary Zingerman’s Family of Businesses, delivered the keynote address. Good Food Founder and Executive Director Sarah Weiner closed out the evening: 

“My wish for you is that tonight is just the start of the celebration and the rejuvenation that you deserve. That having struggled to care for your team and farmers and customers over many years, you can let those around you rise up and carry some of the burden. That you make time to explore new delights, to cultivate your gardens. That you refill your well so your creations can continue to be powered by the vibrant energy and singular vision only you can bring to them,” said Good Food Founder and Executive Director Sarah Weiner.

The Good Food Awards Ceremony and celebration was made possible through the support of the Good Food Merchants Collaborative, a group of 13 independently owned markets around the country. The events were also deeply supported by Market of Choice, Prosper Portland, the Oregon Organic Coalition, Oregon Department of Agriculture, Travel Oregon and Travel Portland, with many others including Organically Grown Company lending a big hand.
