Organic awards open for entries

The BOOMs include categories for Best Organic Fresh Produce, Best Organic Farmer and Best Organic Farmer

The BOOM awards are organised by the Soil Association

Trade body the Soil Association has launched its annual awards for the organic sector with a range of categories for suppliers, restaurants and box schemes.

Dubbed the ‘BOOMs’ (Best of Organic Market), the awards are backed by food writer and blogger Rosie Birkett as this year’s ‘celebrity ambassador’.

As well as industry recognition, the BOOMs offer a platform to profile organic ranges as well as a list of ‘who’s who’ in organic.

New categories are celebrating innovation in the market including the Best New Organic Product, Best New Organic Business and Best Organic Farmer. Other produce-related categories include Best Organic Fresh Produce, Best Organic Market Innovator and Best Organic Box Scheme.

Deadline for entrants is midnight on 31 March, with winners announced at an awards ceremony on 5 July.
