Waterville, Maine (April 15, 2018) - Maine Crisp Company, a specialty food business making gluten-free crackers, won a coveted sofi Award from the Specialty Food Association for their Cranberry Almond Crisps. Maine Crisps were entered and judged alongside other major cracker competitors. The Specialty Food Association grants sofi Awards to innovators in the food market by giving brands global recognition and esteem among peers in leading categories.
“We are thrilled to win a sofi in such a competitive category. I credit the quality of the ingredients and the farmers we work with” said Karen Getz, Maine Crisp co-founder. Karen stated, “being a former farmstead cheesemaker and now cracker maker”, that she, “wanted a cracker worthy of pairing with great cheese, for those with gluten-sensitivity.” She has found that people with or without dietary restrictions love these crisps and that, “consumers eat them as a delicious snack all by themselves, and certainly a blind tasting by a panel of judges confirmed we’re hearing from customers.”
In June, Karen will attend the sofi Meet and Greet Event at the Summer Fancy Food Show as well as exhibit and sample crisps at the Good Food Mercantile in Brooklyn alongside other pioneering good food companies.
