Awards and Media
Wozz! had already been recognized in Australia's Sydney and Hobart Royal Fine Food Awards, which confirmed that we were on the right track before moving to the US. Here, it was accolades of being a sofi awards winner nine times, winning the coveted Gold sofi in five different categories from 2014-2017, that set Wozz! up to be regarded as one of New England and America's most outstanding new companies in quality and innovation. It was in 2014 and after only 9 months in business Wozz! burst onto the awards stage as a three-time finalist in New York City's Specialty Food Associations "sofi" awards. Our creditability continues to grow with two Yankee Magazine Editors Choice awards and a stream of articles and publications celebrating products from our entire line.
