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.

Nutritious and delicious, the all-natural Perfect Pancake & Waffle Mix is made from whole grain wheat and is lightly sweetened with pure maple sugar. These fluffy, easy-to-make pancakes are sure to please, as they are just like those served at her famous restaurants and bakery. The Perfect Buttermilk Biscuit Mix is also easily transformed into the biscuits served at Sarabeth’s restaurants in New York. These tender, flaky all-natural biscuits are great for any time of day. Serve them at breakfast, lunch, dinner, afternoon tea – and topped with fresh fruits and a spoonful of whipped cream, as a quick and easy dessert. As part of the brand’s international expansion, these new products will also be available overseas.
Sarabeth Levine still remains the driving force behind the success and outstanding reputation of the Sarabeth brand. In 1981, Sarabeth began making Orange-Apricot Marmalade from her home kitchen from an old family recipe and selling it to local food shops. From that beginning, Sarabeth with her husband and business partner, Bill Levine, now own and operate a jam factory, a wholesale-retail bakery café and 11 restaurants.
