Our Gold Medal Separates the Ordinary from the Extraordinary

Chefs In America began inauspiciously in 1986, when renowned Chefs and Foodservice Directors gathered privately in the basement of New York’s famous La Reserve restaurant to receive our Masters Of Taste Award. Since then, we have evolved into the oldest, third party Culinary Endorsement Program in the country—The American Masters Of Taste Awards (A.M.O.T.).

We promote “Superior Tasting” food and beverages to average consumers as well as a target audience of more than 6,500 Top Corporate Chefs and High-Volume MEGABUYERS. For early 30 years, consumers have relied on the A.M.O.T. Gold Medal Seal to lead them to America’s SUPERIOR TASTING food & beverage products. When retail & grocery buyers see our SUPERIOR TASTE Gold Medal, they are confident that these goods will deliver excellent performance during use. Our exclusive Gold Medal is a valuable tool- the ability to separate SUPERIOR TASTING products from the thousands of other SKUs on shelves.

Marketing & sales professionals, utilize the American Masters of Taste’s SUPERIOR TASTE Gold Medal Endorsement as a weapon that affords their products heightened brand awareness and a unique selling point. Our Gold Medal separates a brand from the thousands of other competitors in their category during this shelf showdown, review YOU ONLY HAVE 13 SECONDS?

To witness how national F & B manufacturers successfully create eye catching buyer awareness campaigns, debut new product launches as Award Winning, or revitalize the reputation of existing brands with our exclusive Gold Medal Seal, view HOW WILL YOU USE THE GOLD MEDAL?
