NASFT Announces Year's Top Retailers
Congratulations to Mollie Stone's Markets, Pastoral Artisan Cheese, Bread & Wine, Eli's Manhattan, City Feed Supply and Caviar & Banana for earning NASFT's Outstanding Specialty Retailer award:
The winners range from a neighborhood storefront and café to a 20,000-square-foot gourmet emporium to a nine-store natural and specialty supermarket chain. They were selected by a national panel of specialty food experts including previous honorees, manufacturers, distributors and editors of Specialty Food Magazine.
“This year’s winners share a true commitment to providing premium service, well-edited choices of the latest new products, and a deep connection to their communities that are hallmarks of the specialty food industry,” says NASFT President Ann Daw.
The awards will be presented on June 18, 2012, at the Summer Fancy Food Show in Washington, D.C., in a red-carpet ceremony hosted by Jose Andres, the noted chef and culinary innovator. Winners are featured in the May/June issue of NASFT’s Specialty Food Magazine (available online May 1).
