Registration is now open for Flavor of Georgia Food Product Contest 2010!
The Flavor of Georgia food product contest is an annual celebration of all the flavors Georgia has to offer. Market-ready prototypes or commercially available food products are judged and critiqued by a panel of food experts.
Flavor of Georgia casts the spotlight on delicious, original food from right here at home. Unusual foods, (like a catfish burger), unique sauces, (try blueberry salsa), and traditional southern foods (anything peach or pecan) are ready for the competition. Barbecue and hot sauces, confections, dairy products, meat products, snack foods, and jams, jellies and sauces are judged based on flavor, Georgia theme, unique or innovative qualities, commercial appeal and originality.
Save $10 by registering online at http://www.flavorofgeorgia.caes.uga.edu/ beginning December 1, 2009. Deadline for entries is Friday, January 22, 2010, with finalists announced in February. Final judging will be held March 15 and 16, 2010 at the Freight Depot in Atlanta. Gov. Sonny Perdue will announce winners at the Governor’s Ag Day on March 16.
The Flavor of Georgia Food Product Contest is sponsored by the Center for Agribusiness and Economic Development along with partners Governor's Agricultural Advisory Commission, Georgia Agribusiness Council and UGA Department of Food Science and Technology.
