Cementing its status as one of the nation’s most decorated providers of fresh and aged goat cheese, cultured butter, and crème fraîche, Vermont Creamery was again honored by the Specialty Food Association (SFA) with several sofi™ Awards.
At the SFA’s April 11th ceremony, held in New York City, the Association honored Vermont Creamery’s Clover Blossom Honey Fresh Goat Cheese, Cremont, and Crème Fraîche offerings with 2018 sofi Awards in a variety of close-contested categories.
“We are elated to be recognized by the Specialty Food Association with three sofi statues,” said Adeline Druart, President.” “These accolades demonstrate our passion for new product innovation, the immense talent and rigor of our cheesemakers, and our dedication to quality across our product categories.”
At the ceremony, the company’s new Clover Blossom Honey Fresh Goat Cheese was awarded Best New Product for the Cheese-Non-Cow Milk, Mixed-Milk category. Cremont won Gold in the Cheese-Non-Cow Milk, Mixed-Milk category, and Crème Frâiche was awarded Silver in the Dairy, Yogurt, Dairy Alternative category.
sofi Winners were chosen from over 2,600 entries assessed by an expert panel of judges in a series of blind tastings. Each entry was evaluated on excellence of taste and ingredients, and scored accordingly at gold, silver, and bronze levels. New products within each category had an additional assessment for innovation.
