At the 22nd Annual Kosherfest New Products Competition, held in Manhattan, Mountain Bread Wraps took Best in Show. Winners were evaluated by a panel of kosher food professionals as well as two consumer judges. The judges included: Yakov Yarmove, Corporate Business Manager, Ethnic Marketing and Specialty Foods, SuperValu; Marty Stein, Accounting Manager, Tree of Life/Kehe; Jeff Nathan, Chef/Proprietor Abigael’s On Broadway; and two consumer judges Michelle Gross and Randi Hershkowitz.
“This year’s Kosherfest New Products Competition had the highest number of entries we’ve seen-to-date, and reflected a high quality as well,” said Bill Springer, Group Vice President, Diversified Business Communications and Kosherfest Show Producer. “There was a big increase in the number of entries in the meat & seafood category in particular, as well as the dessert, candy, cookie or cracker category. There were so many great entries to the competition this year, and I think the show will reflect the scope, breath, quality, and uniqueness of this year’s exhibitors.”
