Shār is doing everything right.
/OUTDOOR SPORTSWIRE/ – The Good Food Foundation announced in January that shār’s impossibly good trail mix is a 2022 Good Food Award winner. The Good Food Awards are unique in that winners must show not only exceptional taste but also a strong commitment to environmental, social, and business ethics.
Executive Director Sarah Weiner says shār snacks was selected as outstanding in 2022:
“We created the Good Food Awards to highlight the small, local makers doing everything right, whose tremendous contributions are often overlooked. Shār is a true innovator that rose to the top in a blind tasting and met the high sustainability and social responsibility standards of the Good Food Foundation.”
The Good Food Foundation receives over 2,000 entries from all 50 states. Three food crafters from each region – North, South, East, West, and Central – receive the honor each year. The judging process begins with a Blind Tasting by a panel with special expertise in the industry. The Good Food Awards Seal, found on winning products, assures consumers they have found something exceptionally delicious that also supports sustainability and social good. 2022 marks the 12th year of the Good Food Awards.
According to Shār CEO Peter Rushford, “We are honored to receive this award; it validates our commitment to using 100% organic ingredients responsibly sourced from small family farms. The ingredients in shār are grown the way Nature intended, free of pesticides, fertilizers, and chemicals, with no preservatives, stabilizers or sweeteners added. We have a taste first mindset; I spent three years finding the best tasting version of each of the nine ingredients, and every step of the way we are hyper-focused on conservation and sustainability.”
