Brooklyn, New York – Brooklyn-based Acme Smoked Fish Corporation is proud to announce that its Blue Hill Bay Pastrami Smoked Salmon has been awarded the 2017 Gold sofi™ Award. Winners were announced on April 19, 2017, with Pastrami Smoked Salmon honored under the Seafood category. This encompasses ready-to-eat, heat-and-serve, and uncooked seafood products.

The Specialty Food Association (SOFI) has been advancing and recognizing culinary excellence and creativity since 1972. Its distinguished sofi™ Award is considered the “Oscars” of specialty food, with gold status signifying the highest possible honor. This year’s winners were selected from 3,000 entries and judged by a panel of 62 culinary experts. Winners were chosen by blind tasting and are considered game changers and true innovators in their category.

“We’re excited to stand among this year’s celebrated sofi™ Award winners,” explained Adam Caslow, Co-CEO and fourth generation family owner. “This achievement is testimony to our meticulous process and our steadfast commitment to quality.”

Blue Hill Bay is Acme’s premium line of products free of artificial preservatives. Acme uses only the freshest salmon available, which is then naturally cured and slowly smoked with a blend of natural hardwoods. The brand’s Pastrami Smoked Salmon has earned praise for its naturally smoked fruitwood taste. The ready-to-eat smoked salmon product is rich in Omega-3 fatty acids and features distinct Pastrami seasoning.

As part of this recognition, Blue Hill Bay Pastrami Smoked Salmon becomes a specialty food industry ambassador. Acme’s product will also be showcased at the upcoming Summer Fancy Food show June 25 through 27, 2017. Representatives will be in attendance at the show’s Meet ‘n Greet event to connect with press and industry buyers. New packaging that displays the sofi award is forthcoming.

Blue Hill Bay Pastrami Smoked Salmon is available at Brooklyn Harvest, Chompies, Fairway Markets, Gourmet Garage, Morton Williams, Stew Leonards, and Uncle Giuseppes, among others.
