Chosen from a record number of 2,573 entries submitted into 32 award categories, Sarabeth’s Legendary Velvety Cream of Tomato Soup won the sofi™ Gold Award in the Soup, Stew, Bean or Chili category. The 41st Annual Awards, held at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in New York, were presented at a red-carpet ceremony hosted by Chef Marcus Samuelsson.
A national panel of food professionals met over eight days to select 125 finalists, then more than 150 buyers at the Summer Fancy Food Show tasted and tested the finalists to determine their favorites in each category. The results were tabulated by an outside accounting firm on July 1, prior to the ceremony.
Sarabeth has been awarded multiple sofi™ awards including the “Outstanding Classic” Gold award for her Blood Orange Marmalade in 2009 and the Gold award in the “Hot Beverage” category for her Hot Chocolate Parisienne in 2008.
Sarabeth Levine also launched her newest products, the all-natural Perfect Pancake & Waffle mix and Blueberry Mango jam at this year’s exhibition.
