Stonewall Kitchen wins American Inhouse Design Awards and is Nominated for NASFT Awards

York, Maine — Quality and exceptional good taste have been the hallmarks of Stonewall Kitchen since it's beginning in 1991. The designs and packaging of their award-winning products have continued to leave a impression on guests year after year. Recently five of Stonewall Kitchen's creative packaging designs were awarded top honors at the American Inhouse Design Awards.

There were over 5,000 entries for numerous categories for 2007 and the creative team at Stonewall Kitchen won five awards for the following submissions:

Stonewall Kitchen Holiday Packaging 2007 "Christmas Traditions", Stonewall Kitchen Pretzel Dip Packaging, Stonewall Kitchen Holiday Recipe Booklet, Stonewall Kitchen Downeast Cracker Boxes, Barefoot Contessa Holiday Packaging.

For four decades, Graphic Design USA has sponsored national design competitions that spotlight excellence for creative professionals. The American Inhouse Design Awards is the original and premier showcase for first rate work being done by businesses across the nation.

In addition to five design awards, three of Stonewall Kitchen's products have been nominated at the upcoming Awards held by the National Association for the Specialty Food Trade (NASFT). Established in 1952, the NASFT is a not-for-profit business trade association that fosters trade, commerce and interest in the specialty food industry. The Annual Awards are held each summer to honor truly outstanding specialty foods. The competition, judged by specialty food retailers, is open to all members of the NASFT. This summer the following Stonewall Kitchen products are up for nomination:

Balsamic Fig Dressing for Outstanding Salad Dressing; Bellini Jam in the category of Outstanding New Jam, Preserve, Honey or Nut Butter; and for Stonewall Kitchen's exclusive Barefoot Contessa line, Lemon Curd has been selected for Outstanding Jam, Preserve, Honey or Nut Butter.
