Cosmic Dumpling Takes the Gold at the 2022 sofi Awards!

Cosmic Dumpling has won a gold award in the Hot Sauce category as part of the Specialty Food Association’s (SFA) 2022 sofi™ Awards. The award is a top honor in the $170.4 billion specialty food industry.

Cosmic Dumpling was one of 102 winners selected by a panel of specialty food experts from nearly 2,000 entries across 53 product categories. Products are judged on taste, including flavor, appearance, texture and aroma, ingredient quality, and innovation. All tastings are anonymous and are held at the Rutgers Food Innovation Center.

“We’re honored by the sofi win” says Gene Olczak, owner of the Karma Sauce Company. “The reception to Cosmic Dumpling has been overwhelmingly positive, and this award will introduce the product to many new homes and help foster the experience of sharing a great meal. That’s something we’re very excited about."

Cosmic Dumpling was released less than 2 years ago, but within that time has already amassed a number of awards, including a Golden Chile from Zestfest and a 1st place Scovie award. With the sofi win, Cosmic Dumpling cements itself as a rare ‘Triple Crown’ hot sauce, demonstrating excellence at the three most competitive national award venues in the country.
