These days, it's no secret that more and more Americans are in search of healthy, local, and responsibly sourced and produced foods. Luckily, we also have a growing movement of people who want to create those foods.
Panther Coffee Miami-based Panther Coffee is a finalist for the 2015 Good Food Awards.
To honor those working to create a better food supply chain, the Good Food Awards -- a project created by the California-based nonprofit Seedling Projects -- was organized to grant awards to outstanding American food producers and the farmers who provide their ingredients.
In its fifth year, the Good Food Awards will be naming its selections for winners in 11 categories, including beer, charcuterie, cheese, chocolate, coffee, confections, pickles, preserves, spirits, oil and our newest category, honey. Awards are given to producers and their food communities from each of five regions of the country, and of the 206 finalists for 2015 hailing from 46 states, several are from right here in Florida.
