It’s with great respect and honor for the food business that we present NOSH’s Best Of 2019 awards, our inaugural celebration of annual excellence and innovation in the industry. NOSH’s Best Of awards recognize individuals, brands, products and strategies that have demonstrated excellence during the year and resonance that will extend beyond the calendar. We cherish the opportunity to use our platform to highlight these companies, people, and ideas.
The highest awards, Brand of the Year and Person of the Year, are reserved for companies and individuals whose work throughout the year has created lasting, substantial, positive change through innovation and high quality. Rising Stars are companies whose work has great potential to shift or open categories, create new ideas about products or brands, and have shown growth that indicates they will have an enduring presence in the industry. Best New Products are lines or SKUs that have been introduced in the previous year that have at least one outstanding quality in terms of taste, design, cause, formulation, or that generate interest over their disruptive potential.
