SONOMA, CA – St. Benoit Creamery today announced that it has been selected as winner of the “Yogurt Product of the Year” award from Mindful Awards, an independent recognition platform highlighting conscious companies and products that mindfully make waves in the ever-expanding world of consumer packaged goods.
St. Benoit (“Ben-wah”) Creamery believes in REAL FOOD, REAL GOOD. The creamery offers a healthy alternative to the artificial fillers, stabilizers, sweeteners, and bad dairy found in today’s yogurt aisle. With a single herd of Jersey cows roaming the hills of Sonoma County on an Animal Welfare certified farm and crafted at a LEED Gold Certified sustainable creamery, St. Benoit Creamery provides organic pasture-raised Jersey cow’s milk, yogurts and desserts. Their yogurt products (MSRP $2.49; 4.75 oz; MSRP $6.99; 23 oz) are packaged in reusable glass jars, are minimally processed, and feature full-fat, pasture-raised Jersey cow’s milk and gut-friendly live active cultures without fillers and excessive sweeteners.
“Our organic-on-the-go dairy products feature the delicious flavor of fresh local milk from pasture-raised Jersey cows that graze in Sonoma County year-round,” Manon Servouse, Director of Marketing, St. Benoit Creamery. “We are inspired by the beauty of our surroundings and the excellence of the neighboring fresh food, wine and dairy producers who surround us. We are honored to accept the Yogurt Product of the Year award from the 2020 Mindful Awards Program and look forward to sharing our sustainable dairy delicacies with even more local consumers this year.”
The mission of the Mindful Awards program is to honor conscious companies and products that do what’s right for people and the planet, recognizing the best in transparent, fair, natural, organic, sustainable, healthy and delicious products. This year’s program attracted more than 1,000 nominations from companies all over the world. All nominations are evaluated by an independent panel of experts within the consumer-packaged goods industry, with the winning products and companies selected based on a variety of criteria, ranging from brand principles, environmental impact, health, taste and transparency.
“St. Benoit Creamery offers consumers real food and clean labels, a superior-tasting alternative and a sustainable product for savvy consumers,” says Bryan Vaughn, Managing Director, Mindful Awards. “From humanely sourcing local milk to their LEED Gold certified building, it is easy to see St. Benoit’s dedication to a better future for food and our planet. We congratulate St. Benoit Creamery for winning our ‘Yogurt Product of the Year” award!”
