Organic Awards 2014

Organic Awards 2014

Please see the list below for the categories that are still open for entry.

Previously known as the Organic Food Awards, the awards have been showcasing the best in organic food and drink for 28 years. The most prestigious and widely respected awards in the organic industry have got bigger and better. Now open for entries, 2014 sees an expanded range of categories for the first time so that non-food products, such as organic fashion, restaurants, health and beauty products and even holidays, can be recognised.

The awards are a great opportunity for the winning products and businesses to be celebrated, along with the passion and creativity of the people behind them, who care so much about what they do. The winners will be awarded at an exclusive ceremony, as part of the Soil Association Annual Conference on 8 October 2014... save the date!

A panel of well-respected and high profile judges will shortlist entries, which will go forward to a public vote during Organic September. 

The awards are not just open to Soil Association organic certified products and services. See the entry criteria and terms and conditions relevant to each category, for details.
