With over 2,000 entries each year, the competition is fierce for a Good Food Award. After a completely blind tasting in September, Finalists are announced in November. Finalists are the five highest scoring entrants in each category from each region of the country – North, South, East, West and Central. Of these, three in each region become the Winners. All companies that score well on taste undergo a rigorous vetting process to ensure they meet the Good Food Awards Standards before being named Finalists or Winners.
