2018 Healthy Food Guide Awards

The annual Healthy Food Guide Awards honour the best healthy food products available across 16 categories in 2017.

Entries for the awards came from a wide range of food brands within the healthy food space.

Each of the 16 categories were judged on a combination of factors:

  • Nutrition profile: First we check the nutrition information on each product meets HFG criteria, then we compare each product with other offerings within its category.
  • Value for money: This doesn’t necessarily mean it is the cheapest product, rather, it is good value within its category, taking all factors into account.
  • Innovation: The X-factor. We ask what is unique or creative about this product. What does it offer that others don’t?
  • Taste: Our five judges conduct taste tests to make sure all the winning products taste great.

Look out for this award badge in the supermarket. Winning products have the option of including the badge on their product packaging, so you can easily identify them.
