Australian natural foods producer is best at Kosherfest


(JTA) — An Australian natural foods producer won best new product at this year’s Kosherfest.

The 2010 Best in Show prize went to Mountain Bread Wraps, a gourmet food product  that is distributed by No Worries Natural Foods of Fremantle, Wash. There are eight varieties of Mountain Bread, which are soft flatbreads that roll up.

The annual trade show of the kosher food industry opens Tuesday at the Meadowlands Exposition Center in Secaucus, N.J. More than 6,000 visitors are expected at the two-day gathering, according to organizers. This year’s focus is on the kosher foods of Canada.

The winners in 18 categories of new kosher food products reflect growing trends in kosher food, including general health and wellness, reduced fat, soy replacements, natural, gluten-free, spelt and organic.

Along with best overall product, No Worries Natural Foods took home the prize for best baked good, bread, grain or cereal. The Best in Show runner-up was Lily Bloom’s Kitchen of Shoreview, Mont., honored for its chocolate macaroons.
