Sahara Date Company has entered four varieties of our premium Saudi Arabian dates (Ajwa, Khudry, Saggae and Sukkary) in the "sweet snack" category, to be judged for the sofi Awards, the "Oscars" of the Specialty Food Association.
Each year, the sofi Awards honor the best and most innovative specialty food products on the market. There are 39 award categories and there will be four winners in each category: one gold, silver, bronze, and one new product winner. This year, the Specialty Food Association will also be presenting a new award: sofi Product of the Year. Judges included professional chefs, food writers, culinary instructors, specialty food buyers and recipe developers.
It was an honor to participate in this competition and we are eager to learn the results tomorrow, April 19!
