Hancock Gourmet Lobster Wins Gold Sofi


Hancock Gourmet Lobster Co. of Cundys Harbor, Maine, walked away with the Gold Award in the Frozen Savory Category at the Sofi Awards presented earlier tonight at the Fancy Food Show in New York.

Cal Hancock, president of the company, accepted the award for her Port Clyde Lobster Mac & Cheese. The award was presented by Chef Dan Barber of Blue Hill at Stone Barnes, who also presented the keynote address at the awards ceremony, sponsored by the National Association of Specialty Food Trade (NASFT) and held each year at the Fancy Food Show.

Hancock thanked her staff, suppliers, and retailers, while giving special thanks to lobstermen of Maine. This was the fourth Gold Sofi Award for Hancock Gourmet Lobster Co., but its first in the Frozen Savory Category.

Two other frozen food specialty items were big winners tonight. Ciao Bello Gelato Company took top honors in the Dessert or Dessert Topping category for its Key Lime Graham Gelato Squares and G. S. Gelato and Desserts Inc. was the Sofi Gold Award winner in the Diet and Lifestyle Product category for its Blood Orange Sorbetto.

TFFG SAYS: While sampling the delicious Port Clyde Lobster Mac & Cheese at the Hancock Gourmet Lobster Co. booth, TFFG had the chance to chat with Cal Hancock and learn more about her entire product line and business. The products are available in gourmet and better food stores throughout New England and she is looking to expand to other market territories through such stores as Wegmans, the popular retail chain in New York and the mid-Atlantic states. And dog lovers take note, Cal even has doggie treats—Lobster Flavored Dog Biscuits!
