Soil Association BOOM Awards 2016

Jan 7, 2016

The BOOM (Best of Organic Market) Awards 2016 is an annual event through which The Soil Association celebrates all things organic. This includes both people and businesses; farmers, caterers and product brands – all involved in the positive changes we now see when going to buy our food.

Do you know a WWOOF UK host farm or market garden who deserves to be shown some extra appreciation for all the hard work they put in to provide healthy food? Perhaps you are lucky enough to have a local organic bakery or organic cafe? The BOOM Awards are open for entries from now until 26th February 2016 – so don’t delay in nominating your favourite organic BOOMer.

Here’s what The Soil Association have to say about BOOM 2016:

The Soil Association have been recognising the best of organic for years. With the 30th anniversary of our awards approaching, we’re relaunching with a brilliant new look and an exciting new format. 2016 will be our biggest year yet, the Best of Organic Market Awards, the BOOMs, will really make some noise about organic.

This is what Helen Browning, Chief Executive of The Soil Association, has to say:

“Not only is the Soil Association celebrating its 70th anniversary this year, but the Organic Awards are 30! Thirty years of showcasing the best of British organic products, and the amazing people behind the brands. With the organic market back in growth, and with the awards bigger and better than ever, you should not miss the chance to raise your profile, including amongst our judges, some of the foremost experts in their fields and in the media too. And do nominate others too, especially those who are at the cutting edge of excellence and innovation. So do get your entries and nominations in, and we will raise the roof with a BOOM!”
