NOSH Best Of 2020 Award Finalists and Nominees

Each year, NOSH’s annual “Best Of” Awards are presented to honor the companies, brands, individuals, products, ideas and trends that are shaping the food industry. While achieving success in the food industry is arduous enough, the finalists in 2020 also represent the brands that have thrived despite the chaos brought by the Covid-19 pandemic.

In a year that has seen massive upheaval in retail, technology and production systems, coupled with a renewed focus on societal issues, the brands that have found success in 2020 are those that were able to be nimble and creative, yet also stayed focused on the goal of creating and selling and increasing the amount of better food products. The finalists for NOSH’s “Best of 2020” Awards reflect the varied skills required to be a successful food company in 2020, including tenacity, creativity, care, vision, planning and execution.

For the first time, NOSH accepted nominations for the 2020 awards, with over 300 brands applying and still others nominated by our editorial team. NOSH is proud to announce the finalists for this year’s “Best Of” Awards, as follows (with the exception of Person of the Year and Brand of the Year).

Winners will be announced on a live awards show that will be streamed on NOSH on December 17.
